I just love Copenhagen even though it’s one of those cities that you may
leave harbouring a slight inferiority complex. Oh you know, the
impossibly good looking locals and their chiselled cheek bones will make
you wish your parents swam in a different gene pool while the elegant
simplicity of the interior design aesthetic will suggest that you throw
out everything you own and start fresh with bare wood and muted natural colours.
Actually, if you put those two elements together (the cheek bones and
the design that is), you come close to the experience you might have at Almanak, a
recently opened eatery right on the harbour’s edge around the corner from
the tourist magnet that is Nyhavn. Sensational seasonal Danish food served in a comfortable room by the best of the locals is something to be savoured, whatever the psychiatrist bill.
Before you read on, there is a longer post with recommendations of my favourite places to eat in Copenhagen. You can find it here.
