Here are the New Michelin Stars of the North! Live Updates from Copenhagen City Town Hall

There are great expectations, as always, before the launch of the new Michelin Guide Nordic Countries 2018. I’ve made my predictions this year, mainly based on my own opinions, but also some industry rumors. From 4 PM today, on February 19th, I am present in Copenhagen at the City Town Hall for the ceremony. Live updates with the new stars will be posted here.

A lot of people have been asking me about the Michelin’s live stream link this year. I’ve seen many dead links circulating so far, but this is the legit one:

Last Minute Rumors

    • Restaurant Barr in Copenhagen has had three Michelin inspectors visiting, according to chef Thorsten Schmidt. Sounds like the Noma-family might have done it again … Update: It was only a Michelin plate this time.
    • Apparently, Bjørn Svensson from restaurant Galt in Oslo is on his way to Copenhagen. That should be a safe sign for a star coming his way yet another time (he has previously held one star at both restaurant Oscarsgate and restaurant Fauna)
    • Restaurant Jordnær outside Copenhagen is present at the event. Probably means one star.
    • Restaurant Memu in Vejle is present at the event. Previously predicted to get a star by the Danish food blogger Rasmus Palsgård.

Galt ⭐

No restaurants lost their stars or Bib Gourmands in Norway. Restaurant À l’aise, which I and many others predicted to get one star this year, got instead a Michelin plate with three pieces of cutlery. They should get the star next year for sure …
