Video: LYST Food Meets Art in the Iconic Fjordenhus in Vejle, Denmark

Restaurant LYST is located in Vejle Denmark, just a two-hour train ride from Copenhagen. You’ll find the restaurant inside the spectacular Fjordenhus, an architectural wonder located right on the harbor. The building was designed by SOS (Studio Other Spaces), consisting of artist Olafur Eliasson and architect Sebastian Behmann. Head chef Daniel McBurnie crafts a unique tasting menu that changes almost every day, depending on the season as well as on the weather. The menu is made up largely of seafood, and sustainability is a huge focus. All ingredients come from within a 100-mile radius. Rasmus Marquart is the restaurant manager, and the award-winning Nina Højgaard Jensen is the head sommelier.
