The world-famous Nordic cuisine
It is no secret that the prized cuisine of René Redzepi at the restaurant NOMA has become world-famous on its new take on the Nordic fare. NOMA is situated at the North Atlantic House which outlines the tale of the North; the halls of the old warehouse at Christianshavn are filled to overwhelm with contemporary art and culture from the North Atlantic countries.

The particularities of the North is also on the menu at the classy and cozy Bastion+Løven at the National Museum of Denmark's building Lille Mølle at Christianshavns Vold and at Brede Spisehus, which has a history as a lunch room and village hall for the workers at Brede Klædefabrik. At Brede Works, right next to Brede Spisehus, the history of the Danish Industrial Age is unfurled.

Dine in historical surroundings
Several museums serve their fare in unique historical surroundings. Enjoy a traditional Danish lunch with a Stjernepilsner beer at The Workers Museum's Café og Ølhalle 1892 which looks just like it did when the place was built back in 1892. At the Broder Rus’ Kælder at Esrum Abbey & Mill Farm a Middle Age-inspired lunch is served along with monastery beer, and the menu in Folkestuen at Flynderupgård Museum is based on Danish dishes from the 1920s – examples include porridge, bread with grease made by different animal fats and homemade pretzels.

The aesthetical experience
Designer furniture and architecture of international format set the stage for museums and galleries serving culinary experiences. Dine in Zaha Hadid’s remarkable extension of Ordrupgaard or enjoy your coffee pampered in designer furniture at Designmuseum Danmark and The National Gallery of Denmark.

The café at The Danish Architecture Centre also serve their dishes with a view: the Copenhagen Harbor, which stretches as far as the eye can see.
