Jordnær One Michelin-Starred Nordic Elegance

Unlike the New Nordic restaurants in central Copenhagen who serve their tasting menus in very relaxed settings, Chef Eric Vildgaard‘s one Michelin-starred restaurant Jordnær is the picture of elegance. Located just 20 minutes outside of the city in the suburbs of Gentofte, Vildgaard has transformed the ground floor of an old inn from the 17th century into a modern setting for Nordic fine dining, complete white tablecloths and a classical wine list. The tasting menu changes seasonally, but you can expect to see a focus on Scandinavian seafood accompanied by creamy sauces, often topped with a healthy amount of luxury ingredients like caviar and truffles.
