Noma regains two-Michelin-star status in 2019 Nordic guide

Noma has regained its two-Michelin-star status a year after René Redzepi relaunched the world-famous restaurant.

The restaurant, which became the focal point of a Scandinavian cuisine scene that placed scavenged ingredients and minimalism at the heart of its offering, returned to Copenhagen in February last year. The original site had held two stars in the Michelin guide for the Nordic countries – Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Sweden – which were removed after its closure in 2017.

Two other sites also awarded second stars were Jacob Holmstrom and Anton Bjurh’s Gastrologik, Stockholm and KOKS, in the Faroe Islands.

Four new one-starred sites were introduced in the guide, joining the full list of 64. Jonas André Nâvik’s FAGN and Heidi Bjerkan’s Credo, both of Trondheim, Norway, made the cut, along with Nick Curtin’s Alouette in Copenhagen and Eero Vottonen’s Palace in Helsinki.

Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin guides, said: “The Nordic countries offer something truly unique and the diversity and buoyancy of the region’s restaurant scene make it so appealing to food lovers from around the world.

“Chefs continue to develop both their own skills and techniques but also lead the way in reducing food waste, focusing on truly local ingredients and even embracing a more plant-based diet.”
