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

Autumn has arrived in Copenhagen. It’s one of the most beautiful times of year to be here, with the sun and shadows casting a magical golden hue over the city. Summer is over, but it’s not yet miserably cold, so it’s a great time to walk around and watch the leaves change colors before the darkness of winter sets in. As the season changes, it’s also a delicious time to be in Scandinavia. It’s the season of warm fall flavors and comfort food – rich soups, hearty pastas, pumpkin spice and everything nice. But it’s not time to hibernate yet – there’s still lots of fun to be had in the city this fall. Keep reading to see a list of the exciting new restaurant openings, events, pop-ups, and collabs happening this month in Copenhagen.
