  1. Have you guys already been on your trip? I went in May, & hit several of the places on your list (Geranium, Relae, noma, Radio, Ruby, DOP). I would also highly recommend Schonnemann for Danish lunch of open-faced sandwiches. Every single restaurant that dined at & spoke to staff, they all recommended it or lit up when we mentioned it. I was sad that we didn’t have time to hit more places & loved it in Copenhagen. Unfortunately, I don’t blog, but I do post all of my pics on flickr, so you’re welcome to look & if you have questions about any place in particular, feel free to ask me.

  2. Aw, never mind…I stumbled across writeups of 2 of your days in Copenhagen. And I also found that if I clicked on pics above, it took me to Jose’s flickr account, so it looks like you guys were there in January.

  3. Thank you guys so much for curating this list. I just got to Copenhagen, and it’s going to guide me through my eating! Also, just accidently stumbled into Manfreds (found out what it really was through your site) and it was such a great lunch!

    • Amy, what other places did you check out in Copenhagen?? I love that city! If only it was more affordable I would move there!
