Guide: Copenhagen beyond Noma, the Other New Nordic Restaurants

Noma is one the most famous restaurants in the world. Known as the pioneer of New Nordic cuisine, it attracts foodies from around the world lucky enough to score a booking, no mean feat. Reservations open 3 months in advance and are snapped up in a matter of minutes. Noma has had a massive impact on the Copenhagen food scene and many of Copenhagen's new restaurants are headed up by ex-Noma chefs. The style of cooking that Noma pioneered is carried through into these other restaurants, with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients, stylishly present in restaurants that are known as casual fine dining. This style isn't restricted to Copenhagen and is part of a global trend away from formal fine dining; Momofoku in New York, Lyles in London, Nobelhart & Schmutzig in Berlin and De Kas in Amsterdam are all good examples. If you're visiting Copenhagen and your patience or wallet doesn't extend to Noma, below are 5 casual fine dining places to try New Nordic cuisine..

Restaurant Amass Copenhagen

Amass

American chef Matt Orlando has done stints at Noma, The Fat Duck in London and Per Se in New York. Amass does upscale modern New Nordic in a funky warehouse space a short ferry ride from the centre of town. Staff wear denim shirts, and music rocks the dining room. Outside is a small garden and sometimes at night they light up a bon fire. View more details and photos in guide


Restaurant Radio Copenhagen

Radio

Founded by chef Jesper Kirketerp and his partner Claus Meyer, which also happens to be co-founder of Noma. Claus provides some of the ingredients from his own farms and Jesper turns them into a more casual version of New Nordic cuisine. The atmosphere is informal and cosy.

Restaurant Relæ Copenhagen

Relæ

We describe Relæ, founded by two Noma alumni, as the Lou Reed of Copenhagen's Michelin starred restaurants. Fine dining trying hard not to be fine dining. The focus is on a vegetable friendly menu that is sustainable, seasonal and organic.

Restaurant Pony Copenhagen

Pony

Pony is a very small, cosy restaurant with a two person open kitchen in the middle. It’s the younger more casual sibling of two other Michelin starred restaurants (both named Kadeau). The food that comes out of the kitchen is seriously good, inventive Nordic cuisine. And it’s close to our favourite bar in Copenhagen (Lidkoeb).

Restaurant Bror Copenhagen

Bror

Former Noma sous chefs Samuel Nutter and Victor Wagman launched Bror with a very nose to tail eating approach. This is one for meat eaters. It’s probably the darkest restaurant in Copenhagen with candle lit tables, so it’s one for romantic meat eaters.
