Noma closed when we will be visiting Copenhagen. Any recommendations on alternatives for Nordic food?
I had a wonderful meal at Relae but sadly that’s now closed.
A friend who was in Copenhagen recently recommended Marv & Ben (I know, it sounds like an American neighbourhood diner but it very much isn’t). https://en.marvogben.dk/front
Another option that I was considering for a future visit is Hoest. https://cofoco.dk/en/hoest/
Do you want traditional nordic or new nordic food?
Either traditional or new although more interested in new. A friend with a daughter in Copenhagen has recommended Baest
There is a place in Tivoli. I can't recall the name, but it translates to "ditch" or "trench" because it's kind of built in a ditch. Everything was great. The herring was the best I've ever had - amazingly fresh with no fishiness and just a hint of dill.
It's called "Grøften"in Danish. Trafitional Danish food.
Thank you. That's the place.
Our family including picky child eaters and adventurous adults ate at Reffen one night, the large outdoor food place in the North of the city and we all got inexpensive but delicious food we liked.
We ate at Groften too. We had good meals, traditional.
I'll plan to check out Reffen when I'm there in September. It looks interesting. I tend toward street food (e.g. Kababs) or trips to the grocery store to make my own food.
When I go to restaurants, I generally ask a local for a recommendation and ask for "good food, nothing fancy".
We also ate at Groften in Tivoli. We had to pay two park admissions to get to the restaurant which surprised us as we weren’t doing anything else in the park. It was a traditional Danish meal, quite good.
