DENMARK: White Guide Denmark is here
WHITE GUIDE DENMARK: Bistronomy, from fine to fun and popular dining – White Guide Denmark 2016/17 is here. In it you'll find 331 reviews of recently tested Danish restaurants, 99 of them new to the guide from last year. Restaurants in Greenland and the Faroe Islands are included.
For the third year running, White Guide is published in Denmark – and also for the third year running, Noma was awarded Best Restaurant. Each restaurant is visited yearly, and points and review re-evaluated and rewritten. As the guide was launched today, ten special prizes were awarded - see list below.
"The movement from fine to fun and popular dining has been ongoing for some years now, but it wasn't until last year's guide was published that we truly noted the breakthrough for the genre we christened 'bistronomy' – original, brave gastronomy in a very deliberately informal environment. No longer is there a need to choose between having truly good food and having a truly good time, which puts the final nail in the coffin of the idea that gastronomy is only for the rich, or an elite group of foodies. You'll find no elitism among the guests at Hærværk in Aarhus eller Eldorado i Copenhagen, even though both are among those restaurants that are bringing restaurant culture and gastronomy rapidly forward", says Rasmus Holmgård, White Guide Denmark's editor, summing this year's guide up.
