# Geranium – Copenhagen

Eating at Michelin starred restaurant is slowly becoming a fantastic, albet expensive addiction of mine. I was visiting Copenhagen recently with a friend, and thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to dine in one of Copenhagen’s couple Michelin star restaurants. The obvious choice for many is Noma, but I decided against in favour of Geranium for a couple of reasons: Geranium was cheaper, Geranium just last year got its second star so they still must be trying hard, and Noma failed to get its third star last year, making it stay at two stars.

We went for lunch, since not only is it cheaper for the same menu, but it’s much easier to get a reservation. Surprisingly, we were the only people in the whole restaurant. That’s right – a private lunch in a 2-Michelin star restaurant!

The decor is black&white and modern, with a transparent glass in front of the kitchen letting the guests see what’s happening in the kitchen.

We took the Univers tasting menu, the larger option of the two. It consists of twenty-three dishes, and additionally I chose a juice pairing.

That’s it for the menu! There is one last item to make it to 23 – “Black Currant Bonbon with Liquorice”, which you get after payment. Payment… If you are interested, the Univers lunch menu is 1250 DKK per person which is around $230, with no extra tax. That gets you$10 per dish, although a very small one!

Thanks again to the team at Geranium for a fantastic private lunch and a free cookie that they made for themselves afterwards!
