When I decided to go to Copenhagen (for a day!) last November, I was determined to eat in one of the many acclaimed restaurants in the city. While Noma is the most famous, Copenhagen has more than that to offer, with 22 Michelin star restaurants. (Yeah, I didn't know that either.) I put my name on the waiting list for about three restaurants and I got the call from Geranium in the morning, asking if I would like to come for lunch at the last minute. I promptly agreed, slightly embarrassed to show up in a posh restaurant in sneakers. (I needn't have worried)
Geranium is an innovative, restaurant that has recently just been awarded its third Michelin star. Their Executive Chef/Owner has won many awards including the world-chef championship. The service is excellent and everyone was very friendly. I came and ate by myself - nothing stands between me and food when I am this determined - and I think they were extra nice to me because of that. Everyone is taken to the kitchen to meet the chefs, but I felt that I had a bit of extra time, and I got a "family photo" with all the chefs in the kitchen. Also, every time someone came out to bring a dish, they would stay a bit extra to chat with me. I really appreciated that, even if I did also enjoy having a meal by myself.
Here are some of the dishes that I had that wonderful, autumn day.
