Studio Studio is Claus Meyer and Torsten Vildgaard’s gourmet restaurant situated in central Copenhagen in beautiful surroundings at the harbour front. At Studio Torsten as headchef lives out his dream for fine dining and hospitality.

The restaurant opened in October 2013 and was after only four months awarded 1 Michelin-star. In October 2014 Studio was named the 3rd best restaurant in Denmark and the 10th best restaurant in the Nordic countries by “White Guide Nordic”. Furthermore Torsten Vildgaard was named chef of the year in Denmark by “Dansk Spiseguide” (“The Danish restaurant guide).

Studio is a workshop of passion with an inquisitive, curious and playful cuisine, challenging the dogmas in the Nordic kitchen tradition. Torsten himself was a significant part of that as the headchef and driving force at Noma’s test kitchen for 8 years from 2005-2012. Studio’s philosophy is more open-minded and out-going, though, and although the DNA is clearly Nordic, Torsten’s love for French and Japanese cooking shines through in the dishes and the presentation.

Hospitality is taken one step further. Guests are invited right into the heart of Studio at the open kitchen where they can experience the chefs in action and see the smiles on their faces when they nail a dish, which is then proudly served.

The chefs enjoy playing with their guest’s expectations of what they think they are about to taste, turning everything upside down and giving everyone a warm, intimate and personal experience.



Torsten Vildgaard is head chef and co-owner of Studio. After just 5 months open Studio received a Michelin Star in 2014. Torsten was previously best know for his time at Noma as Deputy Head chef and Head of R&D from 2005-2012. In that period of time Noma was named Worlds Best Restaurant in 2008-2011 by “World´s 50 Best Restaurants”.

Torsten was named “Chef of the Year” in Denmark in 2005, he won Nordic Challenge in 2007 and was named “Chef of the Year” in Dansk Spiseguide 2014. This year Torsten is nominated for “the Chef of the Chefs”.

This year Studio is nominated for “Best restaurant in Denmark” in Dansk Spiseguide (Danish restaurant guide) and nominated for Byens Bedste Gastronomi in AOK (best restaurant).

In White Guide Studio was named “New Restaurant of the Year” in 2014 and was furthermore named Denmarks 3rd best restaurant and the 10th best restaurant in the Nordic countries.



Having left Chile when I was 19, travelling has been the greatest educational experience, in terms of acquiring information on various different gastronomies, gathering techniques and flavours.

Working to a high standard of cleanliness, precision and speed whilst under pressure, is one of my finest qualities. My passion for food has enabled me to be creative and confidently use my initiative and develop new systems, increasing in efficiency, when doing so.

Working alongside great Chefs, I have had the utmost privilege to attain valuable knowledge and practice, learning to be resourceful, working with local products, new textures and techniques.

I have also had the opportunity to work in numerous, high demand kitchens, starting as a Chef de Partie, working my way up to become Sous Chef. Some of the most important and influential restaurants in my career that define who I am today, are; Noma (Denmark), A.O.C (Denmark), Harrisons (Australia) and of course Studio.

Where I have had the greatest opportunities to cultivate my potential. Working alongside Torsten Vildgaard, has been significant in the development of my creativity in the kitchen. I have achieved this fundamental skill by constantly being pushed to “keep testing!”.
