Eating Out: Copenhagen

Published Date Author: , February 10th, 2015

Little Mermaid, Copenhagen, DenmarkWhen considering Copenhagen’s food scene, your gaze may be blinded by the 17 Michelin stars bestowed on 15 of the world’s most notable restaurants that reside in Denmark’s capital.

noma (Strandgade 93. Tel: +45-3296-3297. www.noma.dk), Chef Rene Redzepi’s epic riff on Scandinavian cuisine as tasted through a palette of foraged and decomposing plates of this and that, will set you back nearly $500 per person (including wine pairings). For self-proclaimed foodies it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but for those who have set their vacation budget below stratospheric levels, you can still amply celebrate the ever-changing bounty of Nordic cuisine.

Recounting the Danish dining experience is challenging in that it is often based on locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Items you’ll find on midsummer menus (strawberries and asparagus) will vary greatly compared to what you might see in fall or winter (Danish cheeses, root vegetables). Don’t worry, the innovation and transformation transcends the waning and waxing of the moon. Redzepi, along with other gastronomic leaders throughout Copenhagen, are an inspiration to a new generation of innovative chefs who are establishing their own bragging rights. There are also a number of can’t-miss classics that will lure anyone with a palette for perfection.
