What else could something called “Restaurationen” be other than a place to eat? Despite its unimaginative name, this widely acclaimed Copenhagen eatery resides in the city’s shopping precinct and enjoys an assured popularity. Owners Lisbeth and Bo Jacobsen swap the food menu weekly, featuring seasonal dishes whipped up with the picks of Danish produce and a heavy emphasis on seafood.
The restaurant subtly marries modern and conservative aesthetics: works by modern Danish painters Søren Ankarfeldt and Peter Carlsen hang suspended from the walls, while simple white candles and white-and-blue porcelain crown the tables. All the better to focus on the meal in front of you, especially when faced with a wine menu designed to carry you through five courses with lubricious ease.
