Malling & Schmidt is widely considered to be the most important restaurant in Denmark outside of noma.
It may be the best restaurant in the world, but noma has a lot of interesting and creative competitors in its own country.
Today most people who follow restaurants know noma, yet few outside Denmark realize Redzepi is far from a lone maverick.
