Housed in a warm and friendly hotel in Copenhagen’s Gentofte neighbourhood, couple Tina and Eric Vildgaard’s restaurant Jordnær is a true representation of Danish hospitality. The restaurant takes its name from the Danish word meaning ‘down to earth’ and remains true to form: the team are solicitous, and the food elegant but not intimidating. Open since 2017, Jordnær’s dining room is replete with comfortable chairs, solid dark wood floors and bursting with bright, natural light. Menu options include monumental-size langoustines, turbot and king crab fished from local waters. Chef Vildgaard knows his proverbial onions: he works closely with his producers and fisherman, ensuring only the highest quality seafood makes its way on the plates, while front-of-house lead Tina Vildgaard caters for guests’ every whim with subtlety and discretion. Look out for the wide range of caviar – Vildgaard’s speciality – which features regularly across the vast tasting menu.
