Food Tours

9 Things To Eat and Drink in Copenhagen, Denmark

This time of year, conversations at Chow Bella staff meetings tend to turn to who's eaten what -- where. With the summer travel season still in full swing, we bring you Food Tours, our writers' suggestions of what to eat and drink out of town.

In 2011 Food and Wine named Copenhagen one of three cities to watch for its "supercharged" food scene. So if you don't know much about Denmark, know that this beautiful city is at the forefront of the New Nordic cuisine trend, thanks in no small part to the food of Rene Redzepi, chef of Noma, the restaurant named best restaurant in the world not one, but three times.

But you don't have to go white-table cloth to find a great meal in Copenhagen -- though if you want to, there are so many places to choose from it's becomes a real time and budget balancing act. In fact, I'd venture to say that there are so many great eating adventures to be had in Copenhagen that you don't have to feel bad if you don't make it to Noma or any of the 13 Michelin Star restaurants in the city. And I promise I'm not just saying that because I couldn't get a reservation at Noma five months out.
