Since the launch of our Nordic selection in 2014, our inspectors have continually been impressed by the culinary avant-gardism of the local restaurants. From Denmark to Sweden, Finland to Norway and Iceland, these destinations shine with the personality and boldness of their chefs, who are internationally renowned gastronomic trend-setters. In addition to this remarkable creativity, Nordic restaurants are also a great source of inspiration when it comes to imagining the contours of a more sustainable gastronomy. The growing number of MICHELIN Green Stars in our selection illustrates that awareness and action are part of the daily philosophies of many Nordic restaurateurs.

Our Nordic edition has always had a special place in our big MICHELIN Guide family. From Norway to Denmark, from Sweden to Finland without forgetting Iceland, chefs from the Nordic countries have been playing a really special role within the world culinary concert, promoting the best of their diverse terroirs and demonstrating a very innovative and committed vision of gastronomy. Despite the challenges, chefs have demonstrated over the past year an exceptional level of commitment and dedication in maintaining their restaurants and proposing to their customers great culinary experiences: that’s all we want to highlight, while contributing in the best way to the recovery of the sector.

The past year has been extremely challenging for the restaurant industry around the world. Despite that, our teams have been really impressed by the level of commitment, dedication and creativity that chefs and their teams have demonstrated to overcome the crisis and its effects, alongside continuing to propose incredible gastronomic experiences. By maintaining our 2021 selection of restaurants to be unveiled in spring, it is exactly what we want to celebrate, as well as draw attention to the whole industry
