Today I want to show you a standard in Copenhagen, no, sorry, THE STANDARD !
Sophisticated, modern and tempting atmosphere in a historical Art Deco building from 1937. It is a jazz club, an Indian restaurant, two Danish/Nordic restaurants and two bars situated in the heart of the city, right next to Nyhavn. I was in Copenhagen at the end of September and I’m so sad I’ve missed it, because they opened their doors on October 3rd! Claus Meyer (founding father of the Nordic Cuisine and co-owner of NOMA) and Niels Lan Doky (Danish jazz legend and internationally acclaimed pianist and producer) are two of the co-founders, but I want to present you the three restaurants – Studio, Verandah and Almanak.
The first one – Studio – is headed by the other co-founder Torsten Vildgaard, who had his debut as head-chef/restaurateur here, has been working at NOMA for 8 years. It is located on the first floor and has a breathtaking view of the harbour. The interior is designed by the design team Christina Meyer Bengtson and Ulrik Nordentoft.
Almanak – is located on the ground floor and is also designed by Christina Meyer Bengtsson and Ulrik Nordentoft. Headed by Andreas Møller under the concept ”the food that our grand parents would have made if they had known what we know today”.
Verandah – the indian treasure, located also on the ground floor, is designed by the Danish-Italian design team GamFratesi. Is leaded by Karam Sethi (the youngest Indian chef with a Michelin star) and the creative director Rizwana Merchant (former pastry chef of the original “Osteria dell’Arancio” in Grottammare, Italy).
