Thank you SO much for that update/history, Jakob. I had read about the hiring of Kofoed, which piqued my interest, but not about his having left!
I hate to trouble you, but what are some of the other options near the hotel? I was thinking of our first night, when we may want to get back to our bed quickly after dinner. We're interested both in simple and fancy - but somewhere focusing on Danish dishes would be most welcome.
These are all within easy walking distance of the Hotel.
Premisse, www.premisse.dk, also in english. Dronnings Tværgade 2.
Ensemble, www.restaurantensemble.dk, Tordenskjoldsgade 11, very close
A less formel place that is getting good press lately
Oubæk, www.rasmusoubaek.dk/, St. Kongensgade 52, very close by. A former top place turned brasserie. Haven't been there, but supposedly good value.
None of those places are particularily danish
this is though
Tolbod Bodega, http://www.toldbod-bodega.dk/
, mentioned above. Esplanaden 4, maybe a good kilometer away. You might want to check there opening hours. Traditional danish food is often thougt of as a lunch thing, but I am sure they'll be open most nights.
The area around the hotel, is filled with small little streets, there are plenty of good takeaways and such.
Across the square from the hotel is the Nyhavn area, which especially in summertime is very popular with tourists, might be in december as well. Don't go there for the food, go there for the atmosphere, and maybe a beer or two.
