Alouette The Least Likely Location for a Michelin-Starred Restaurant

Through graffiti-adorned concrete walls, up a rusty service elevator reminiscent of the Twilight Zone, down a hallway where rock music and the scent of marijuana seep from band practice rooms is a hidden oasis. Restaurant Alouette, Copenhagen’s newest Michelin-starred restaurant, is situated in the unlikeliest of places. A beautiful juxtaposition of grunge and luxury, it’s a location that instantly begs the question: are you ready for a culinary adventure? The five-course tasting menu is quick and punchy (and very reasonably priced), unlike other more drawn-out dining experiences. Highlights included the pain au lait with apple and bacon butter and the turbot drenched in chicken sauce.
