Redzepi's post on Facebook
"We have just been named the second best restaurant in the world! Honestly, none of us here ever imagined it could happen. The other day in the kitchen someone said "We could be the 49 number!"
Not having been on the list for almost four years, and now the debut at the 2 number after 12 months of opening is simply incredible for us. I don't want to go into the policy of which list or guide is better than another, but, I just say that I feel incredibly proud and happy for the team I work with every day and thankful to all those who voted for us.
Thanks a lot to everyone. But how lucky we are to be in a city with TWO restaurants in the top five. Congratulations to Geranium for being voted 5 number. But the best congratulations go to a great friend of mine and one of the best cooks I know, Mauro Colagreco and the whole Mirazur team! "
