At this Danish-French gourmet restaurant, you get to watch the chef prepare your meal right in front of you from the intimate 12 seat bar counter. After dinner, make sure to finish off the night at the cozy wine bar just by Copenhagen's harbour front.

One of the things to come from Copenhagen's famous New Nordic revolution was an influx of top-level chefs from around the globe. One is former Noma Pastry Chef Rosio Sanchez, who first gave us phenomenal tacos from her popular taco stand in Torvehallerne, and who now has opened her own Mexican restaurant in 60 Istedgade, Copenhagen V.
