The experience of eating at the three top restaurants Geranium, AOC and Noma – which I did earlier this month – was indeed special. I have eaten in all threee of them several times before, and find them great.
But to be able to compare them this close was really special, and I must say that Noma comes out as the winner. That said, I found Geranium the most artistic and beautiful of the three.
AOC was the most energetic and varied, and had by far the finest food and wine pairings.
Noma scores top as the most balanced, having food, service and ambiance calibrated to perfection.
