Chef: Rasmus Kofoed

The inventive fine-dining restaurant Geranium of Danish Chef Rasmus Kofoed is located just outside the centre of Copenhagen. It’s location at the top floor of the National Football Stadium in Fælledparken is not really usual for high class restaurants but once inside, guests are welcomed into a light, spacious, luxurious and modern dining environment.Geranium Restaurant Copenhagen

The restaurant’s interior was renovated in 2015. A part of the restaurant was converted into a big open kitchen theatre in order to emphasise on the experience. White and grey colours are mixed with wood and modern, chic Nordic design. The walk-through wine cellar at the entrance of the restaurant boasts an impressive collection of bottles and the restaurant also features a big private dining area.Geranium Restaurant Copenhagen Geranium Restaurant Copenhagen

Chef Rasmus Kofoed is the only chef in the world who gained the gold, silver and bronze medal in the famous Bocuse d’Or competition. The chef received his training at Hotel D’Angleterre on Kongens Nytorv in Copenhagen. He gained experience at restaurant Scholteshof in Belgium, the famous restaurant from Roger Souvereyns. Upon his return to Denmark, he started with the creation of his own, refined and unique cooking style. While this style is clearly still Nordic, it remains technically skilled, pure and balanced. The chef gets his inspiration from the land and the sea nearby and uses the best from every season. Only the very best ingredients are used.Geranium Restaurant Copenhagen

There is one tasting menu at Geranium, which consists of about 25 snacks, dishes and sweets. Guests have the choice between a wine or juice pairing with the menu. Restaurant manager and co-owner Søren Ørbek Ledet is responsible for the management of restaurant Geranium. He is also focusing on the impressive wine collection, together with sommelier Mikael Båth. They offer a carefully selected wine arrangement and manage a team of skilled staff members.Geranium Restaurant Copenhagen Geranium Restaurant Copenhagen
