Copenhagen Food News (February 2022) Openings, Events & Pop-Ups

It has been a bit of a slow season in Copenhagen, with another lockdown wreaking havoc, yet again, on the struggling restaurant industry. Despite the restrictions, we still saw quite a few restaurant openings in the last months in Copenhagen. And now, all restrictions have been lifted once again! Here’s hoping we are now on the other side of this once and for all, and that the pandemic is finally behind us. The sun is starting to shine, the end of winter is near, and things are looking up. Keep reading to see a list of the exciting new openings, events, pop-ups, and collabs happening this month in Copenhagen.

Located in Nørrebro in Copenhagen, in the old venue of the cocktail bar Gilt, Jatak is a Cantonese restaurant from Jonathan Tam’s (former head chef of Relæ). The name stems from the most common reply from a cook to a head chef in Nordic kitchens, “Ja, tak!” (meaning, “Yes, thank you!” or “Yes, chef!”). After much anticipation, Jatak finally opened its doors officially on January 14. Reservations for February are already sold out – stay tuned to their IG for their March releases.
