Geranium in Copenhagen is the best restaurant in the world 2022

It is not so strange if the world of fine dining still speaks the Danish language, if the world capital of haute cuisine, the one that teaches and gathers proselytes everywhere, is again Copenhagen. Decreting this now familiar axiom is the classification of The world’s 50 best restaurants, who inaugurated it on Monday 18 July Geranium led by chef Rasmus Kofoed and sommelier Søren Ledetcrowned best restaurant of the ranking that has reached its twentieth anniversary. A ceremony always expected and followed all over the world, which makes people talk about themselves, dream, imagine and see years of intense and hard work recognised. From the historic Old Billingsgate building in London, chaired by the actor and gastronome Stanley Tucci and sponsored by San Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, the world’s 50 best restaurants, as always, put on a show and gave judgments, confirming or overturning some historical certainties. Not in this case: indeed Geranium in Copenhagen was placed second in the 2021 edition, just behind the sacred monster that corresponds to the name Noma, neighbor and co-leader of this new culinary philosophy that goes by the name New Nordic.

It is no coincidence that Geranium is not only a concentrate of Scandinavian haute cuisine, but an entire ecosystem of excellence, brave choices and turning points that make people talk about themselves. Like the latest news about chef Rasmus Kofoed in 2021, who for the first time abandons meat in his menu and embraces a vegetable philosophy that speaks of territory and unconventional products, attention to the seasonal cycle and raw materials that contribute to creating a clean, pure and balanced cuisine. Unusual location where the Geranium riseson the eighth floor in Copenhagen stadium with a magnificent view of Fælledparken in the heart of the capital. A location that connects directly to gastronomic vision of geranium: The large windows of the world championship site underline the vision and philosophy of this place, based entirely on biodiversity and clarity, both productive and executive. Pelargonium is indeed natural inclination and tension to the connection between the urban structure and the surrounding nature, and makes it clear through its space, the team and the menu that is proposed.

A completely open space, connected to the kitchen, which communicates with diners’ tables, minimal but never cold or detached interior elements, wood, glass and natural materials that underline the Nordic vision of this place. ONE Nordic comfort in the true sense of the word, many excellences in design are called in the field, such as Fritz Hansen, an internationally recognized interior design brand founded in Copenhagen in 1872, which has collaborated and collaborates with designers such as Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm and Hans J. Wegner, some of whom is present on Geranium. A circular system that interfaces with cooking by Rasmus Kofoed and his brigade, which boasts 11 people of Italian nationality. Kofoed’s culinary vision is actually all aimed at the dialogue between aesthetics and substance, shapes and textures, taste and visual pleasure. Elegant and refined, the guests of Geranium will be taken on a tasteful journey that is the son of this country and its new vision that teaches the whole world.
