Denmark gets first three-star Michelin restaurant

The new guide was also a cause for celebration in the rest of the country, with a number of restaurants outside Copenhagen and Aarhus picking up stars for the first time. Noma, the Copenhagen restaurant named as the world’s best from 2010-2013, was again given two stars.

Adding to the Danish success stories was Oslo’s Maaemo and its Danish chef Esben Holmboe-Bang, who were awarded the three elusive stars.

Fifteen Copenhagen restaurants made the guide as did three in Aarhus, but for the first time three new Danish restaurants all outside of the main cities were also included.

Frederiksminde in Præstø, Bornholm restaurant Kadeau and Henne Kirkeby Kro in west Jutland were all awarded stars.

A total of 22 stars were handed out – four of these to first-time honorees - and all of the restaurants that made it on to last year’s list kept their spot for 2016.

In keeping with the new provincial additions, the name of the guide has also been updated from Michelin Nordic Cities to Michelin Nordic Guide.
