Tiffany-JNG-Silverspoon

We are very happy to welcome guest contributors for this column!

Tiffany J. NG was born and raised in San Francisco. Her love affair with food began as soon as when she could hold a spoon. That passion and her creativity merged, and Silver.Spoon was born in Copenhagen in 2009. Founded as a labor of love, Silver.Spoon has grown into a well-respected gastronomic experience agency operating internationally. Its creations are more art installations than dinner parties, and aim to redefine our relationship with food –a « dining journey »– as well as with the people we share it with.

With its modern Nordic cuisine, its seasonal, local, organic and internationally recognized products, green spaces galore and a friendly eco lifestyle, Copenhagen is one of greenest city in the world.

DAY 1

Check-in at the newly renovated D’Angleterre and head down to Restaurant Marchal for breakfast. After breakfast, rent a bike for the duration of your stay or make use of our city bikes that are positioned at various points throughout town – it’s the way we all move around!

Take a leisurely stroll or bike ride around Kongens Nytorv and head up Bredgade, a street lined with design and furniture boutiques. Arrive at the Designmuseum Danmark, which houses a well-curated collection of Danish and international design housed in a stately building, and take a tour of the premises.

Take a break from all the shopping and walk to Kongens Have / Rosenborg Slot for some urban foliage. If you are in the mood, stop by and pick up a coffee on the way over from Coffee Factory (Gothersgade 21).

For a pre-dinner drink, stop by Ruby (Nybrogade 10) city center or Lidkoeb (Vesterbrogade 72B), its more relaxed little sister in the Vesterbro neighborhood of town. On a cold winter’s day, there is nothing better than warming up with a skillfully crafted cocktail at Ourselves Alone (Badstuestræde 7).

Pop over to the revitalized Jægersborggade – formerly pusher street – for an early afternoon of hipster chic shops and cafes. If you are looking for a souvenir, visit Keramiker Inge Vincents (Jægersborggade 27) and bring home one of her delicate thinware pieces.

If you can fit in another bite, order the tartar dish at Manfreds (Jægersborggade 40) – the best in the city – and a glass of their biodynamic wines.

Take some time to return to the city and explore Torvehallerne, the gourmet market housed in two glass buildings. Make a stop at Omegn to try their selection of organic and biodynamic products while sipping on a glass of Bøgedal, one of the best Danish microbrews – and still a hidden gem – on draft while lounging at a table outdoors.

Conclude your trip to Copenhagen with dinner at Relæ (Jægersborggade 41), a starred restaurant that has stripped away all pretenses and devoted their attention to delicious gastronomic creations.

ESCAPE
If you get the time, don’t miss the Louisiana Museum, one of the best worldwide art museum . Thirty minutes from the center of the city, located by the coast, this magic spot is a great experience mixing architecture, art & nature. Louisiana would also be perfect for their brunch buffet while overlooking the crashing waves.
