Copenhagen

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Sneak I now know we have a Just Copenhagen thread :)

 

I have an 18hr layover in CPH on the way back from the Faroes, landing ~4pm and leaving at 10am, so I only have time for one proper meal :(

 

I met a Vietnamese chef in Hanoi who had worked at Pescatarian and Kanalen. I have so much other stuff to research for the other part of the trip, that I’m inclined to be lazy and just choose one of those unless you guys have a better recommendation.

 

Hotel recommendations are welcome too. I might just leave the meal open to chance, but I will definitely need a decent police to sleep. After a week of getting up to shoot a 5am sunrise through an 11pm sunset I’ll probably be wrecked.

Thank you, Hollywood! Of course I’m on the waitlist for Noma but I’m operating under the assumption I won’t get in :)

There's also Alouette (recently earning their first star), opened a year or more ago by Nick Curtin and his wife Camilla Hansen.

 

Nick was the chef at the late, lamented Rosette, on East Broadway (currently the home of Mission Chinese Food).

 

Great guy, great cook.  Not quite as lovely as Camilla (who is a cover woman and actively models), but you get the picture.

okay, i'm not sure if you people are going to be of much use here (unless behemoth sees this) but: friends going to copenhagen for a few days with their 7 year old are asking for recommendations for good restaurants that are child-friendly (their daughter is very well behaved). anything?

Posted above yours - they (Camilla and Nick) have a 4-5 year old, so I'm guessing they're child friendly - can always call first.

there’s a swedish mommy blogger that someone brought to my attention, she’s got pictures of her kids at fiskebarren and most of the places you’d want to go except for the very high end (noma, geranium).

just to clarify--should have said it before--these friends are not looking to go to very expensive/michelin-starred places.

10:00 AM tomorrow:  the Noma fall Game Menu reservation time.  (Funny how they arrange to make it line up with 10 AM EDT.)

 

Chances of my getting a reservation:  0%.

Its possible I'm like months too late to answer, but I absolutely loved a meal at Kadeau recently.

a follow-up to say that my friends and their child went to dinner at fiskebaren and liked it a lot. here is their effusive review:

 

 

The three of us just returned from eating at this place, which was also recommended by many people online. We walked there through an encampment of homeless people. We got there at the dinner opening, when there were many empty seats. We sat in a booth with a table-to-ceiling fish tank in the middle.

 
Scallops raw: Mild. Like ceviche, but less flavor. Could be more.
Fish and chips: Good for 6-year-old. Pointless for adults.
Squid poached: Very good. Even the 6-year-old grudgingly liked parts of it.
Plaice seared: Very good. Denmark knows how to use peas.
Cod main: Cooked perfectly, with no adornment (except several yummy things on the side).
Blackberry dessert: Good, I guess. I'm rarely into dessert.
 
Meanwhile we treated ourselves to two cocktails each.
 
Sure Kurd, Slow Reviver No. 2: Tasty, but a bit on the sweet side.
Just That, Pine Martini: Perfect. Not too sweet.
 
The bill was of course quite much. Anyway, thanks for the recommendation.
