It appears that 2021 is starting off much like 2020 – in lockdown. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) took over the world last year, and now we have yet again been ordered to stay at home. That’s right, Copenhagen is in a second lockdown that will severely impact the restaurant industry. Even though we can’t go out to eat right now, a lot of restaurants are still open and offering takeout and home delivery options. Here is a list of the best restaurants in Copenhagen that are staying open and offering take-away or delivery. We hope it helps make this time of quarantine a little tastier for you! Stay safe, and stay hungry.
Support Your Favorite Local Restaurants!
Restaurants are struggling to survive right now. They have employees and rent to pay, and hardly any income. If we don’t support them today, we might not have them around tomorrow. That’s why takeout is the new eating out! You can support your favorite local restaurants, and also eat better food at home.
