Copenhagen has almost everything on the menu – from smørrebrød and salad to sushi and French fusion cuisine. The city’s many restaurants testify to the fact that Danish gastronomy is a serious contender on the international food scene. In fact, Danish restaurants boast more Michelin stars than cities such as Rome, Berlin and Madrid. The following pages list some of Copenhagen’s best eateries, encompassing six good suggestions in three different price ranges. Last but not least, why not try the city’s hippest quarter, the former meat packing district Kødbyen, which offers three exciting restaurants?
Umami combines the philosophy of Japanese cuisine with the traditions of French gastronomy. The menu features both sushi and hot dishes. Umami is at the more expensive end of the price range, but on the other hand it will be a treat for all your senses. Umami also includes the takeaway outlet Umami GO, which is located beside the restaurant.
Noma’s mission is to promote Nordic cuisine by using pure and healthy raw ingredients. In 2009, Noma was awarded – for the third consecutive year – two Michelin stars and was also named the world’s third best restaurant by the UK’s Restaurant Magazine. Remember to book a table.
Do you like your steaks big? Then it’s imperative you visit Copenhagen’s new and modern steakhouse, MASH. At MASH you compose your own main course as you decide which sauce, accompaniments and vegetables you want. The wine list mainly features American wines. If you are just after a snack with your beer, MASH also serves a wide array of light dishes.
Bistro Boheme makes it possible to taste notable and exciting wines without having to buy a whole bottle. You pay up front and add credit to a card, which is then used to fill your glass with 5, 10 or 15 cl quantities. Bistro Boheme also has a fantastic French menu, including a few Asian-influenced dishes.
Madklubben is a bistro for people who want a good meal out without having to pay the earth. The ambition is to give people the chance to eat good food, while focusing on quality and enjoyment. The bistro takes its inspiration from Danish peasant cooking combined with the new Nordic approach of using classic raw ingredients.
If you’re running short of credit on your credit card, then make for Tony’s. The atmosphere is a lively mix of New York and Italy, and the menu features ‘Tony’s spaghetti and meatballs’ and the Disney classic ‘The Lady and the Tramp’, from which the restaurant takes its name.
