July in Copenhagen is like Paris in August -- many restaurants, art galleries, shops are on holiday.

Everything is closed in Northern Europe - had to book two new restaurants in Amsterdam because Lastage and Jasper's (our two favorites) are closed. Instead it will be Christophe's and Blauw Aan De Wal.

 

We'll see.

I like Blauw Aan de Wal. It's a great spot. The food is fine, but the setting and service are excellent.

That's good to know Nancy - thanks. Have you been to Jasper's? It's a little more than a year old and it's a terrific place with an outstanding chef-owner.

 

Any knowledge of Christophe's?

I thought Blauw Aan de Wal was just lovely. As Nancy said, more for the whole experience than for anything special about the food.

Going down that alley, in that neighborhood, and then entering this oasis of charm . . . .

If everything is closed and you have to have this kind of food then it's not a terrible option. Not much of an endorsement but a realistic one, I think.

What would you recommend? I know Das Kas is open, but we thought it was just okay last time.

In July? Smoking outdoors. 

 

Is &Samhoud Places open?

Yes, just replaced it for Christophe's - thanks. Menu looks fascinating.

Had a great hotdog.

That is all.

Not really, but kind of.

 

Noteworthy meals at Radio, Kiin Kiin, Geranium. (I liked Radio the best. Too tired to write coherently about any of them now.)

 

The best part about Copenhagen was the pastry. If I lived in Copenhagen 1) I'd become poor very quickly and 2) I'd gain about 30 pounds in the first three months from all the amazing wienerbrød, snegle, snurre, etc. (Meyers Bageri, Lagkagehuset, Sankt Peders Bageri, Nordisk Brød, etc.) And the pretty good beer scene, but really, it's all Belgian knockoffs. 

 

The hotdog I had at Harry's place was really delicious.


Immortal space traveler.

Danish pastry.

At last the Danes get a cuisine of their own.

I love Lagkagehuset -- especially the raspberry viennabrod.

I've been looking for this on Youtube ever since Noma made Copenhagen a thing. I don't know why suddenly today's search found it.



(I've been wondering since I first heard this song as a little boy what's going on with the pistol. It sounds so cheery.)

OMG. This is the precise clip I saw some 50-something years ago.

It's amazing the things you remember.



You can see why I was wondering about the pistol.

Another great song about the city.  Salty old slut of the sea.

 

Sadly, it seems Vivi passed away last year, leaving a legacy of some 48 movies. Many of them doubtless featuring that song.
