Copenhagen Food News (November 2020) Openings, Events & Pop-Ups

While the rest of Europe is entering a second lockdown, Copenhagen restaurants are still open – for now, at least. That could change if we move from the current phase three to level four or five. If shit hits the fan and restaurants are forced to close once again, we will relaunch our take-away guides and keep you updated on the best offers. But for now, keep reading to see a list of the exciting new openings, events, and collabs happening this month in Copenhagen.

Let’s continue to support our local restaurants, but please, do so in a safe way. Don’t go out if you have any symptoms of any sort (e.g. fever, headache, a dry cough) or if you are supposed to quarantine (after traveling or being in close contact with someone infected). As you probably know, wearing a face mask is required now whenever you walk around in a restaurant (entering, exiting, going to the restrooms, etc.). Always practice good hand hygiene – wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer when soap is not available. Luckily, restaurants are among the cleanest places you can visit! They have vast experience in keeping surfaces sanitized and following strict hygiene rules. The 10:00 pm curfew will be in effect for the rest of the year, so make an early reservation if you can.
