More Michelin stars to Danish restaurants in 2018

At the award ceremony yesterday at the Copenhagen Town Hall, Danish chefs waited in a mixture of anticipation and anxiety. The good news was in command, no stars from 2017 were lost and three new ones were gained.

The 2018 Michelin Nordic Guide is something like the Oscars to chefs around the Nordic area. In 2017 a range of new restaurants gained their first star, something which has really benefited not only them but also their local suppliers as the chef from the restaurant of the old manor house hotel at Dragsholm Slot  said to DR1.

So they were all hoping not to lose it again.

Luckily no one did, and one even gained one more star as Copenhagen’s Kadeau added a second one in the 2018 guidebook.

Again this year new restaurants were added to the list, the restaurant Jordnær at Gentofte Hotel in Gentofte north of Copenhagen, as well as MeMu in Vejle – Jutland.

One star means that is is a really good restaurant in its category, two stars means it is worth the detour and three stars that it is worth the journey.
