Trailblazing chef Bo Bech (a local celeb for his role as TV host of Denmark's version of ‘Kitchen Nightmares’) is at the heart of today's Copenhagen food scene. His imaginative take on the New Nordic movement sidesteps experiential dining for a more laid-back approach. Framed by the perpetual motion of the open kitchen, the lively, monochromatic space – all wrought iron and polished stone – allows his vibrant dishes to shine. Whether you dine at the counter or on the large terrace, Bech’s menu showcases a lightness of touch, an expert palate and a reverence for seasonality and local produce. Duck with blueberries and liquorice and lamb heart with grapes and sorrel are emblematic.
