Geranium opens as a new vegetarian restaurant, Angelika

Denmark’s 3-starred Michelin restaurant and one of the Best Restaurants in the World, Geranium, will pop up as a new ‘summer lunch’ kitchen this June as the establishment is preparing its official reopening.

Named Angelika, the temporary vegetarian restaurant is a tribute to chef Rasmus Kofoed’s mother, serving a host of innovative, plant-based creatives to savor and remember.

The new concept will open from 4 June, Thursday to Saturday, 12pm to 4pm for lunch only. A tasting menu is around 650DKK.

Located right next to the charming Fælledparken in Østerbro, the spacious location is bright and airy. Overlooking the greenery in Central Copenhagen, Angelika will offer residents of the city some fine Danish fares with a view.

P Eatery

P Eatery is a sophisticated gastronomic bistro of the recently redesigned luxury hotel Skt Petri. Located right in the city center, overlooking The Copenhagen University, the ground floor restaurant is home to a Scandinavian interior, where the expansive restaurant space is lined with a simplistic concept with lavish details – marble tables, leather chairs, dark wood elements, whilst floor-to-ceiling windows invite natural day light to brighten up the otherwise rather uninviting space.

Despite its prime location and rather approachable pricing for its standard, we are not surprised that the restaurant is often half filled, only. Although its website says they ‘cook with no pretensions … No muss, no fuss’, its relatively glamorous layout and standard high-end hotel grade service can be considered as quite intimidating for locals.

Menu is Nordic with a Mediterranean twist, and is split according to size with petit, medium and main dishes. There is also a choice of a 4-course tasting menu at 450DKK (or 350DKK for vegetarians). We have tried the 4-course tasting menu and a la carte at several occasions and the experience varied from wow to ummm (disappointment partly due to high expectation thanks to previous charms).

Overall, it is a good place for a special night out. Enjoy the attentive, 5 star dining experience without burning the wallet.

Grød

Grød is a chain porridge bar in Denmark.

While they offer an international range of savory oatmeal fares styled in the likes of congee, daal or risotto, there is something distinctively Nordic about the concept – you will see that many organic, healthy and local ingredients are being used for their dishes. Many options are gluten free and vegan-friendly.

The outlet décors are also simple, minimalistic and atmosphere casual. Perfect for a quick, wholesome meal.

Väkst

Resembling a green house, Väkst is Cofoco’s latest restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen, offering a gastronomic experience with an informal vibe.

Their menu changes monthly, featuring organic Nordic vegetables and sustainable fish and meats.

For a tasting experience, a 3-course vegetarian menu costs 275kr and won’t hurt your wallet. To indulge, enjoy an evening menu at 595kr with aperitif, multiple signature courses and wine tasting.

We recommend the ground floor for more natural daylight in the summer, whilst its basement is warm and offers a sense of ‘hygge’ in the winter.

Gonzo

A new café has arrived at one of Copenhagen’s most happening streets, Jægersborggade. Gonzo feels spacious and cozy. With large windows, plenty of plants and space, the café is an airy den. It is almost as if it was designed like a household living room so kids and kidults could run around freely as adults and grown-up (alike) could have some conversations.

On the menu are plenty of organic and natural options, such as craft beer by Herslev Bryghus, some natural wines, organic filtered coffee and herbal tea, as well as a host of cakes. Organic breakfast plates are served daily while brunch dishes are available on weekends.

What makes it more special is its weekly community dinner on Monday at 100kr/adult, 75kr/child from 3-7, and complimentary for the little ones under 3. Naturally, the grower friendly place serves plenty of vegetarian bites for those who do not eat meat, or are a support of the green Monday movement. Whether you are simply visiting the capital city of Denmark, new in town or have lived here for your whole life, Gonzo offers an authentic communal /social dining experience (Fællesspisning) that has been recently trending in Copenhagen.
