The perfect place to try some contemporary simple Scandinavian food with a twist when visiting the beautiful Danish capital? BROR! Two incredibly talented chefs, Samuel Nutter and Victor Wågman, started their own restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen. Bror means “brother” in Danish and, though they incessantly tease each other, it testifies to the fraternal qualities of their friendship.
Nutter and Wågman, who each spent several years under René Redzepi, have taken elements of Noma’s style and philosophy and translated them into something thrillingly new. Nutter and Wågman only use locally sourced ingredients (think fresh berries from the woods) and all the unused parts (trash cooking) and turn it into something delicious. This style of cooking — smoking, pickling, and drying — was born out of those brutal Scandinavian winters. All of their dishes are complemented by an organic wine list.
Without having spent all your Danish Krones at once, you get a lovely Nordic inspired evening. Tip: book ahead!
