At The Standard you will find STUD!O - a one-star Michelin restaurant with the vision of uniting passion and innovation.

Looking directly at the water you can sit back and let yourself be seduced by the finest Nordic cuisine with a touch of South America.

Behind the restaurant is the vision to create a kitchen that is rooted, but not limited to, the Scandinavian countries. A Nordic kitchen that embraces and explores the possibilities in the world’s tastes and cooking methods.

The restaurant opened in October 2013 with Torsten Vilgaard as Head Chef and partner to Claus Meyer. Shortly after the opening, STUD!O received a Michelin star in the famous guide, and it has been hanging around ever since.

In October 2014, STUD!O was named 3rd best restaurant in Denmark and 10th in the Nordic countries by White Guide Nordic. In recent times, STUD!O is ranked at OAD's top 100 top best restaurants in Europe as well as the 4th best restaurant in Denmark








Head Sommelier: Lau Christian Thorn

Lau has been working with and around food and wine since his early teens. The humble start was his work as a dishwasher at a small restaurant in Aalborg, then serving as a waiter and later also Assistant Manager at MASH Aarhus. After Lau finished his apprenticeship as a waiter and sommelier and was also admitted as a member of the Danish Sommelier Association, he moved the piles to Copenhagen, where he has since been to high-profile Copenhagen restaurants, among others Umami and Marchal and Formel B, both of which have a star in the Michelin Guide. In 2016, Lau started as Head Sommelier at STUD!O and is today for the whole of The Standard.

Lau’s wine style is classic and the interest and passion goes back to the time when France, Germany and Spain dominated the world's wine production, and the time when wines from the United States and Australia were exotic. Despite the classic approach to the wines, Lau is not afraid to make use of new styles. Especially the more naturally produced wine has something to offer and is something that continues to be explored at STUD!O.




We are always on the lookout for the perfect addition to our little family, so feel free to apply if you'd like to be a part of STUD!O!

While the STUD!O team loves to work hard, we also have fun and strive to create a friendly and relaxed work environment. We don't focus solely on experience, but rely on a passion for service to give a world class experience for our guests.

Equipped with a truly international team, STUD!O strengthens its Nordic DNA with influences from all over the world to take creativity to the next level.
