The geranium has a somewhat usual location. After moving from King’s Garden in 2007, in 2010 it moved to the eighth floor of the city’s National Football Stadium, overlooking Flledparken Gardens.
Since opening its doors to the public, Geranium has also become the first Danish restaurant to win three Michelin stars.
Throughout 2022, Geranium served a meatless menu for the first time. Rasmus Kofoed, the chef at Geranium, quit eating meat five years ago.
This year, Geranium’s menu focused on local vegetables and seafood from organic and biodynamic farms in Denmark and other parts of Scandinavia, according to its website.
