New entries in Eat CPH - my gastroguide to Copenhagen
Restaurant Pluto is owned by Rasmus Oubæk and Jesper Marcussen, the guys behind the now closed Retour and its siblings Retour Steak. Pluto is a bistro with a twist, serving protein rich tapa-ish dishes. Great oysters and foie gras!
The über hotel’s restaurant has been rebooted with Ronny Emborg as head chef. Don’t come here for crazy avant-garde, the cuisine is classic but sharp and elegant. Ronny Emborg is an extremely skilled chef and produces some stunning dishes.

What better occasion to get back to blogging than spending an evening with five of the absolute super stars of the Nordic kitchen. I was so incredibly lucky as to be invited to attend the Nordic Chefs’ Summit 2014 at Maaemo in Oslo. A get-together of the top Nordic chefs on the Pellegrino 50 Best Restaurant list. That’s nine Michelin Stars in one room.

Restaurant Bror is a new and quite wonderful place created by “brothers” Wågman and Nutter – two exceptionally skilled former Noma sous chefs. I went twice, here is a write-up of my first visit on the opening night.

Alexandre Gauthier’s terroir-driven cuisine appealed to me with its simple look and not too many different ingredients and things going on on the plate. The pure taste of the ingredients is in focus and it is honest food. I also I really liked the playful-ness to both the dishes and to the interior with its intense frog’s theme going on everywhere. Very charming.

Sitting there at the counter, watching the show unfold right before my eyes was one of the most exclusive dining experiences I’ve ever had. Björn Frantzén (and later in the evening as the savory dishes were replaced by the desserts, Daniel Lindeberg) talked us through all the dishes, explaining about the produce, the preparing and how they constantly aim for even more focus, more taste and more purity in their cooking. In fact, Frantzén/Lindeberg’s was one of the most coherent meals I’ve ever had and full of all the luxury products I love.

To one […]

The first time I heard about Restaurant De Librije was when I watched Jonnie Boer’s exciting presentation during the Chef-Sache in Cologne in September 2011. He was show-cooking his signature dish of Foie Gras, North Sea crab and fermented red cabbage juice. I had the pleasure of meeting both Jonnie Boer and his sweet wife Thérèse at […]

First time I visited Krogs Fiskerestaurant was back in 1995. I still remember my visit. I had invited a very good friend of mine to thank her for a favour she did. I had booked a taxi that secretly took us to the restaurant and she didn’t know where we were going. Since 1910, the […]

I knew from the superb quality of the lunch […]
