As many food lovers know, Denmark has recently become a culinary destination. The man chiefly responsible for the transformation is René Redzepi, of the famous noma restaurant in Copenhagen (which closed in February). His influence has spread across the country, with numerous chefs who trained with him now flying the colors of his New Nordic cooking, which espouses local, seasonal and often wild, foraged ingredients. This has upped the country’s gastronomic game immeasurably. Here are six outstanding Denmark restaurants worth trying.
The light-filled dining room of this famous old hotel is an ideal lunch spot for locally landed seafood and delicious smørrebrød (Danish open-faced sandwiches) topped with shrimp and smoked fish. In good weather, lunch is also served in a lovely back garden.
