Jordnær gets its second Michelin star
Restaurant Jordnær in Gentofte north of Copenhagen was the other big, Danish winner at the 2020 Michelin event, adding a second star to their page in the Michelin guide. The ambitious restaurant is run by the couple Eric Vildgaard and Tina Kragh Vildgaard with sustainability and Nordic cooking at the heart of the menu. The restaurant has also been renowned for changing to a four day work week thereby giving their employees an extra day of free time.
With these three new stars, Denmark maintains the level of 35 stars from 2019, as restaurants Studio, Era Ora and Substans (closed due to moving) each lost a star in the 2020 guide. The 35 stars are spread across 26 restaurants with Geranium in Copenhagen on top as the only restaurant with three stars. The Geranium chef Rasmus Kofoed was also celebrated at this year’s Michelin event as he received the 2020 Mentor Award.
