MICHELIN is pleased to announce that the 2024 restaurant selection for The MICHELIN Guide Nordic Countries (including Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) will be presented on Monday 27th May 2024.

For the first time, the City of Helsinki has been chosen to host The MICHELIN Guide Nordic Countries Ceremony. The Ceremony – to which all chefs running MICHELIN-Starred restaurants in the Nordic countries will be invited – will take place in the historic Savoy Theatre, and will be followed by a Cocktail Dinner, held in Helsinki City Hall, which will highlight the best of Finnish and Nordic cuisine.

In line with its ambition to celebrate the diversity of the regional cuisines that contribute to the excellence of Nordic gastronomy, The MICHELIN Guide has been holding its annual Ceremony in different regions or cities each year. As the vibrant capital and inspiring flagship of Finnish cuisine, Helsinki makes the ideal host for the next MICHELIN Guide Nordic Countries Ceremony.

The event will see the announcement not just of the renowned MICHELIN Stars, but also the MICHELIN Green Stars, which recognise pioneers in the field of sustainable gastronomy. A range of Special Awards celebrating outstanding industry professionals will also be presented.

Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of The MICHELIN Guides, commented: “We are delighted that, for the first time, our annual Nordic Countries Ceremony will be held in the magnificent City of Helsinki. As Finland’s capital and national culinary flagship, Helsinki will be the perfect location in which to bring together the crème de la crème of Nordic gastronomy. Together with the City of Helsinki, as well as the support of Business Finland and Visit Finland, we will organise a Ceremony worthy of the talent of the chefs and the excellence of the restaurants that our inspectors have independently chosen to honour.”

Marja-Leena Rinkineva, Economic Development Director for the City of Helsinki commented: «We are thrilled MICHELIN Guides has chosen to organise one of the world’s most famous restaurant event in our city this year. The unveiling of the new Nordic restaurant selection of the MICHELIN Guide is a great opportunity for local food industry representatives to highlight their expertise and specialties. Versatility, personality and a certain kind of uniqueness are Helsinki’s strengths when it comes to our food culture. We have the courage to combine new and old, eastern, western and northern, and come up with something completely off-the-beaten-path. Food is a key contributor to Helsinki’s overall vitality and appeal, and it is one of our main priority areas for the coming year

The 2024 MICHELIN Nordic Countries Ceremony will be broadcast live via The MICHELIN Guide YouTube channel, allowing everyone to share in the excitement of this prestigious event.

Immediately following the Ceremony, the new selection will be found on The MICHELIN Guide website and app. On these platforms, gourmets and travellers can access all the restaurants and hotels recommended by The MICHELIN Guide, free of charge.
