Geranium has a somewhat usual location. After relocating from King's Garden in 2007, it set up shop in 2010 on the eighth floor of the city's national soccer stadium, overlooking Flledparken gardens.
Since opening its doors to the public, Geranium also became the first Danish restaurant to win three Michelin stars.
Throughout 2022,Geranium has been serving a meatless menu for the first time. Rasmus Kofoed, Geranium's head chef, stopped eating meat five years ago.
This year, Geranium's menu has focused on local vegetables and seafood from organic and biodynamic farms in Denmark and other parts of Scandinavia, according to its website.
