Copenhagen’s new Michelin stars
Seasoned visitors to Copenhagen have known it for years, but the news that the latest Michelin Guide has awarded nine stars to the city’s restaurants, the same amount of stars as Rome, Madrid and Brussels, has confirmed that Copenhagen continues as the number one food-lover’s destination in Scandinavia. Copenhagen has now eight restaurants with one star and one restaurant with two stars.
The 2007 edition of the renowned foody’s bible, the French Michelin Guide, has awarded a total of nine stars to Copenhagen restaurants, which means that the city now boasts more Michelin stars than any other city in Scandinavia. In fact, the Danish capital has more starred restaurants than you will find in any of the other Scandinavian capitals in Sweden, Norway or Finland.
Danish cuisine as a whole has changed radically over the past twenty years, blending southern European influences with the richness of Denmark’s natural produce, such as its traditionally excellent dairy produce, its quality, organic fruit and vegetables and, of course, the raw ingredients from its surrounding waters.
This change has been led by Copenhagen’s restaurants, which, over the last decade in particular, have begun to be recognised by top food writers, gourmets and gourmands from around the world.
The new Michelin-starred restaurants are smaller and owned by younger people who work in the kitchens themselves or as waiters.
Restaurants with Michelin stars are:
Noma based in a converted 19th century warehouse beside the harbour in Christianshavn. With experience of working in some of the world’s finest restaurants (including The French Laundry in California; El Bulli in Spain), Noma’s chef, René Redzepi, has returned to Copenhagen where he now blends the most exciting contemporary techniques with the finest Nordic ingredients sourced from as far away as Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland. A hot tip for the future. In 2005 Noma achieved their first star, and in 2007 a second star was added.

Mads Refslund, chef, finally opened his own restaurant called MR. He has worked his way via The Paul, Noma and Kokkeriet and now has a place ‚where I have put my mark in every nook and cranny. What I want is to create a hothouse for the art of cooking.‘ The style is modern European with roots in the traditional Danish kitchen. It has been classified as „Rising Star“ in the 2006 edition of the Michelin Guide and in 2007 achieved its first star.

Outside of the city, Søllerød Kro, a historic coaching inn to the north of Copenhagen in Holte, is known for the unfussy, peerless quality cooking of chef Jakob de Neergaard. In 2007 Søllerød Kro was bestowed its first star.

Other restaurants in high esteem are:
Close to Sankt Hans Torv in Guldbergsgade and opened in September 2006 is the gourmet restaurant KiinKiin (in Thailand this means ‚eat eat‘ or ‚come-and-eat‘ and is heard all over at mealtime). In the 2007 edition of the Michelin Guide Kiin Kiin got ‚rising star‘. From the restaurant there is a beautiful view over the Jewish Cemetery and the interior has been put in the hands of the group Panta from Bangkok, especially known for their organically formed furniture of bamboo and water hyacinth.

Bo Bech has recently taken over Restaurant Paustian (rising star in 2007) and, apart from the title of chef on his visiting card, he would be right in adding inventor and alchemist. The magic that comes from his kitchen is such that even a blasé food critic is impressed.
