Greenland’s first Michelin-starred restaurant 

Tucked away in the Faroe Islands, a Danish archipelago, Koks is the world’s most remote Michelin-starred restaurant. For the summer of 2022 and 2023, the two-Michelin-starred restaurant will move even further to Ilimanaq, a 53-person village in Greenland, making it the first Michelin-starred restaurant to open in Greenland. 

 “As a Faroese person, I’ve always felt like there’s a connection there [to Greenland]. It’s a place we identify ourselves with, at least when it comes to the raw materials,” Ziska shared with Bloomberg. 

Koks at the Ilimanaq Lodge can accommodate 30 people and will be open from June 12 to September 8. The tasting menu starts at 2100 DKK/$310 and a wine pairing is available for an additional 1600 DKK/$236. 


Plan for Faroe Islands' Koks 

Ziska’s original goal was to transplant Koks from its current location to a new building in the Faroes, but the slower than expected building process has delayed the construction. The team still plan to reopen Koks on the Faroe Islands, but they are waiting for permission to start the project. In the meantime, two sister restaurants Ræst and Roks led by chef Ziska and head sommelier Karin Visth will open in the Faroe Islands in spring. 

Reservations can be made through the Ilimanaq Lodge website.
