  1. Going to Berlin in early april. Anyone able to provide updated recommendations for medium-priced places - BiB gourmand style places, but not limited to such. No special cuisine or anything, as long as its tasty!
  2. sounds like great choices - keepem coming
  3. here thru the elections - looking for good, informal places - no specific cuisine I had dinner at Graffiato http://graffiatodc.com/ - octopus with olives, was great - pizza also delicious looking for same kind of atmosphere - no necessarily italian inspired. I am at Dupont Circle, but anywhere within reachable by Metro is fine Any help appreciated Jakob
  4. Atmosphere is fun there - but for the food. Schønemanns or Aamanns is way better imo,
  5. Going there in a week - want to make sure to get some of those famous Moules Frites? Other recommendations welcome as well
  6. relae is not exclusively Nordic - but the chef there used to be the sous at Noma, and the influence in taste and technique is there, but he also draws from his italian background radio - is more Noma light. The owner, is also co-owner at Noma kadeau - is both more and less fundamentalists. Their base is the cuisine and product of the tiny Island Bornholm, where the main restaurant also is - but they arent purists I believe. They have received great reviews for a long while now
  7. you are going to get some great meals for sure! Aamanns is great for smørrebrød Schønemanns is another option there the names on your list are the hot tickets atm - are you looking for a something specific, they are very different places
  8. Will be there early february. Not looking for any particular kind of food, as long as it is great, I hope someone can help
  9. What are you looking for? Le Sommelier in nearby Bredgade os good. If you want steak, so is MASH same street For more of a nordic cuisine without going to NOMA, AAmans in øster farimagsgade is a good bet (5 min by cab)
  10. Geranium closed about a month ago, due to a disagreement btw søren and rasmus and the new owner. The old owner was commited to turning Geranium into a world class restaurant, the new one, not so much apparently. Quite a shame, but the boys have promised to open up a new place.
  11. Not much opening, far more closings (Noveau, Geranium) A couple of places recently opened in the upper medium genre, getting some buzz Kødbyens Fiskebar - http://www.fiskebaren.dk/da/ - fish place in the old meatpacking part of Copenhagen that also sports a couple of fancy bars, and some galleries among the still working butchers MASH - steakhouse http://www.mashsteak.com/default.asp - founded by the guys behind Le sommelier, and Umami (both still worth a visit) in the High end Restaurant MR is set to reopen - http://www.mr-restaurant.dk/ Scarpetta- an italian place from the boys behind Cofoco etc just won AOK - Best new restaurant, haven't been myself Aamanns - whose danish smørrebrød I am a huge fan of, has opened an evening place next door, focusing on modern danish - http://www.aamanns.dk/
  12. ...going there next week. Looking for good, moderne british food. Good gastropub. Any other personal favourites Thanks Jakob
  13. I'll give it a go Best smørrebrød: My vote goes to Aamanns, in Østre Farimagsgade http://www.aamanns.dk/index2.html - it is a slightly modern, less mayonaissey version of smørrebrød. All homemade, and even cheaper than most of the usual suspects from the guide books. It is a little off the beaten track, but not far from the city centre, and right next to The National Museum of Art, should one be so inclined. The best pølse: Across the street from the central train station is a deli abnd a hotel called Nimb. In a small hole-in-the-wall they do great (yet ekpensive) hot dogs. Greeeattt. Not michelin: Slightly more difficult. The best ´nordic´places are top end, and I advice you to eat a few more hot dogs and save up for Noma. One place http://www.saahvidt.dk/, supposedly does good modern danish food, but I haven't been there myself, so I cant vouch. Bakery: Andersens, to my knowledge, has no store in Denmark. I like the chain emmerys, to be found in several locations, http://www.emmerys.dk/emmerys.htm. More traditional, but also good, Lagkagehuset, in Christianshavns Kanal. Great neighborhood to get a cofffee and relax. Enjoy Jakob
  14. Got back from Cefalu last week, and while the city was wonderful, I was less impressed with the food scene. Great pizza at Al Girotondo, 10 minutes outside of the historic town centre. Good pasta at La Botte. Less than stellar fish at the restaurants with wonderful seating seaside. I would recommed getting on a bus to Castelbuono, app 20 km inland. Charming little town, and a restaurant that specializes in game and mushrooms. Nangalarunni. Great place, wonderful food.
