               Where to Eat (Absurdly Good)
                  Nordic Food in Copenhagen

We mean: outside of Noma. But must the word Noma be in every title of every article about Copenhagen dining?

Dessert at Relae in Copenhagen
Dessert at Relæ

To many an eater, Copenhagen means Noma, chef-owner René Redzepi’s temple to hyper-local Nordic ingredients, and the restaurant that’s topped the list of the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants for four of the past five years. But for those who cannot secure one of its 45 highly sought-after seats—or shell out the US$500 a head or so for its 20-plus courses with wine—there are plenty of other places in which to experience the Danish capital’s superstar rise to gastronomic fame. Copenhagen, you see, has had its culinary landscape transformed by the rise of Noma, not only in the creation of a so-called New Nordic cuisine—whose hallmarks include foraged or otherwise regional (and sometimes raw) ingredients served with technical precision in surprising, creative ways—but also in the trickle-down effect that the restaurant’s runaway success has had in inspiring other chefs, many of whom spent time in Noma’s kitchen at one point or another.

Last month, Scott and I booked our flights to Copenhagen too late to even have a chance at getting into Noma. We mourned this briefly, but then considered our budget and allowed a sigh of relief. We could reserve dinner at three other restaurants that week, better understand the city’s hot new dining scene, and actually afford a babysitter for about the same cost. What we didn’t expect was to blown away by all three of those “alternate” restaurants, and leave Copenhagen wanting more. This is where we went.
