“Nordic culinary delights under whitewashed vaults”
Maître de Maison
- Mark Lundgaard
Soak up the history and savour the exquisite cuisine at Restaurant Kong Hans Kælder. Established by the Grønlykke family in 1976, the restaurant is located in the oldest cellar in Copenhagen dating more than 700 years back, erected during the reign of Danish monarch King Hans, and once the residence of legendary author Hans Christian Andersen. Vaulted ceilings and soft lighting create an intimate atmosphere. An open kitchen invites guests to observe the Chef while he crafts such signature dishes as his Roasted Black Lobster, served with delicate white asparagus and accompanied by an asparagus-lobster mousse with a superbly light and frothy asparagus sauce. Classic French cuisine has been paired down to respect a new-found desire for simplicity. Superb ingredients, such as the freshest shrimp from the Fjords or turbot from the North Sea speak for themselves.
