RESTAURANTS IN COPENHAGEN
The chef René Redzepi and the entrepreneur Claus Meyer have shared the challenge of transforming the Copenhagen restaurant scene into something as crazy as it is inventive while preserving their local values.
Their houseboat anchored in the harbor is the place where anything can happen. There, scientists, chefs, chemists, anthropologists and academics are pushing the boundaries of the kitchen to share and exchange the discoveries that they later put in practice in some of the the most popular restaurants in the city and around the world. Here are some addresses not to miss:
Facing the harbor, the restaurant Noma stands in a crude but refined décor made of light wood. The chef presents a selection of inventive and surprising tapas. (Strandgade 93 – www.noma.dk)
The latest, Höst was conceived and created by the architects of Norm and the designers of the collective Menu. In the middle of a pretty courtyard, it offers a more accessible and traditional cuisine – although still innovative – and with a welcoming atmosphere, pastel tones and lightwood. (Nørre Farimagsgade 41 – www.cofoco.dk)
And in a pristine white decor, the restaurant Radio, opened by Claus Meyer offers an inexpensive table with very good vegetarian products grown in their garden outside of Copenhagen. (Julius Thomsens Gade 12 – www.restaurantradio.dk)
