- Cuisines: Scandinavian, Local Traditional
We admire this eatery for never pretending to be more than what it is, which is a place to go for real Danish cooking. Without any particular flair, it dispenses hearty and filling meals based on market-fresh ingredients. Solid and reliable, this restaurant is housed inside the thick stone walls of a former 18th-century brewery. You can enjoy a drink or two in the atmospheric pub next door. Most serious diners head down a flight of stairs from the street into the cellar-level restaurant. Menu selections include Danish meatballs, platters of smørrebrød or several kinds of smoked fish, herring offered either cold and marinated or fried and served with dill and new potatoes, and tournedos of beef with a sauce made from fresh tomatoes and herbs. The cooks prepare these dishes like your mother does -- assuming she's Danish.
