Three Michelin Stars, Copenhagen
Reviewed by Justine Murphy, CEO of mymuybueno – September 2016
The entrance to Geranium is unusual. On arrival you take the lift to the 8th floor of the National Football Stadium, Parken, in Copenhagen. This made it all the more exciting and so very different.
Geranium was set up by Rasmus Kofoed and Søren Ledet and first opened its doors at the King’s Garden in Copenhagen in 2007. The restaurant closed in 2009 then reopened in 2010 at its current location. Co-owner and executive chef Rasmas Kofoed won his first Michelin star in 2012 and his second a year later. In the spring of 2016, Geranium was awarded its third Michelin star and was the first restaurant in Denmark to receive this honour.
Rasmus is the only chef to ever have received gold, silver and bronze medals at Bocuse d’Or (the most utterly prestigious gastronomic competition in the world) in 2005, 2007 and 2011. Super talented.
With its panoramic park views, you are completely surrounded by nature in Geranium. It is all so very fitting and you can see from where Rasmas draws a lot of his inspiration.
