Rasmus Kofoed and Søren Ledet at the Geranium Restaurant in Østerbro in Copenhagen have been awarded yet another Michelin star to add to the one they already have.

“Two stars? Really? Fanstastic,” says Rasmus Kofoed as ibyen.dk gives him the news a few minutes after Guide Michelin Main Cities of Europe 2013 issued its news release today.

“This, we didn’t expect,” Kofoed added after shouting out to assembled staff.

He may not have done so, but consensus among Denmark’s food buffs has long indicated that Geranium provides Denmark’s most luxurious gastronomic experience and that the restaurant on the eighth floor in Parken deserves another star.

“We have had a fantastic development – but you can never know with the Michelin guide. But I’m overjoyed that they also think as we do,” Kofoed says.

What does the extra star mean for you?

“Time will show. Right now we are all gathered, as we are every morning. But today we’ll be opening the champagne,” he adds.

Geranium has room for 60 á la carte guests. It is listed as Number 49 on a list of the 50 best restaurants in the world.

This autumn, Kofoed’s partner Søren Ledet won first prize in the European championships for professional waiters – the Coupe George Baptiste.

Gerankium opened in September 2010 and received its first Michelin star in 2012.

A lunch menu costs DKK1,100 while a dinner menu costs DKK1,450 – excluding drinks.

Noma
While hopes were fulfilled for Geranium, Michelin failed to award René Redzepi at Noma restaurant in Copenhagen a coveted third star to bring it to the level of Paul Bocuse’s l'Auberge du Pont de Collonges, La Pergola in Rome and Gordon Ramsay in London.

Noma has been awarded first place in the San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards for three years in a row.

The restaurant has recently been in the news after more than 60 of its guests went down with the norovirus. Over the past year, Noma has had a waiting list of more than three months – and irrespective of the recent episode, that waiting list is not expected to be shortened.

15 stars to Denmark
With today’s announcements, Denmark now has a total of 15 Michelin stars. Apart from Geranium and Noma, Restaurant Kadeau in Christianshavn has been awarded a new single star, while Restaurant Nimb in Copenhagen, which had a star, has closed.
