The Danish news paper Politiken has asked me to predict 2011 from a Danish and gastronomical point of view. One of the things I mentioned is that I believe Noma will get three stars in the Main Cities of Europe 2011 guide. When posting a link to the article on my Very Good Food Facebook page I immediately got a reply saying “I’m not sure Noma will get the three stars. Although they deserve it.”
Something in me wanted to reply right away and state my reasons why I feel the should. I had all my arguments lined up but then I hesitated. Perhaps it’s just me who is too emotionally attached to Noma that I cannot judge it without bias any longer.
But what do you think? What qualifies a restaurant for three stars in your opinion? And do you think Noma qualifies for three stars?
