I had the chance to spend last weekend in Copenhagen…Of course, the Noma was already full until this summer, so I ended up in Geist restaurant, near the Nyhavn canal, where you can see those famous colourful houses. The chef, Bo Bech, closed his restaurant with the same name a while ago (it had one Michelin star), before opening this new one. He was formed in London and also Paris with Alain Senderens and  Alain Passard at the Arpège. Some wood tables surround the open kitchen with its bar, in a dark and designed atmosphere. There are no entrées or main course, only same sized plates, that you order one by one, depending on your hunger. They are between 12 and 30 euros each (yes, Copenhagen is very expensive). Good mention for the fennel raviolis which I loved, on the other hand, with the chef beeing away a lot (reality tv show and so on), I felt that there was a lack of precision in the meals, which I found often too salty – shame!

Kongens Nytorv 8
1050 København, Danmark
33 13 37 13
Salted butter, crab & mashed potatoes (too salty!)
Mushroom soup (tasty but too salty again!)
 Fennel raviolis – probably the best ones I ever had, a tasty explosion in a delicate paste – & perfectly grilled turbot
Sorrel, poched egg yolk & duck magret (a little too cooked)
Sheep milk yoghurt ice-cream, wild sorrel & cocoa branches – interesting mix of acid flavours
