Geranium emerging from Coronavirus Crisis lockdown with plant-based concept 

Denmark’s only three-star Michelin restaurant gleans inspiration from vegetarian home cooking

One of Denmark’s absolute top gastronomy gems, Geranium, has revealed that it will open a new 100 percent plant-based lunch concept on June 4.

The Østerbro, Copenhagen-based restaurant announced that it will emerge from the coronavirus lockdown with a temporary cuisine experience, named Angelika, which draws its inspiration from the name and cooking of the mother of co-owner Rasmus Kofoed.

“Dear Friends, in addition to Geranium reopening in the first week of June, we proudly present ‘Angelika’, a plant-based restaurant in our Inspiration Kitchen where you can enjoy simple, seasonal dishes from the garden to the table,” Geranium wrote on Facebook.

From June 4, Angelika will be open Thursday-Saturday from 12:00 to 16:00 and bookings can be made via Geranium’s website.

Meanwhile, Geranium’s usual restaurant will be open on Wednesday-Saturday from 18:30 to midnight.

Geranium isn’t the only Copenhagen eatery to think outside the box during the Coronavirus Crisis.

Noma recently kicked off a new burger and wine concept, which is expected to continue until late June.

Last year, Geranium (5th) and Noma (2nd) were both ranked in the top five in the annual The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards.
