Noma maintains two stars in 2011 Michelin guide

Rene Redzepi's Noma has maintained its two-Michelin-star status after the French guide decided not to promote the world-famous restaurant in Copenhagen to three stars.

Noma, which was last year named the world's best restaurant, had been widely tipped to gain its third star in this year's guide to the Main Cities of Europe.

Meanwhile Michelin has awarded restaurants in Budapest, Helsinki and Stockholm with new stars in the 2011 guide, which covers 44 cities in 20 countries.

The company has awarded Onyx in the Hungarian capital with a star, a move the group says reflects the rapid growth in gourmet restaurants in Budapest. Onyx, which is only the second establishment in the city to gain a star, serves a modern menu overseen by executive chef Szabina Szulló.

Michelin also awarded a star to Olo in Helsinki, Finland, as well as to Thörnströms Kök in Gothenburg, Sweden, both of which are modern Nordic restaurants.

The 2011 Main Cities of Europe guide, which concludes Michelin's European coverage for this year, lists a total of 1,771 restaurants. It includes 15 three-star establishments, 58 two-starred places, six of which are new, and 284 one-star restaurants of which 39 are new.
