Restaurant Palægade became a reality when a bunch of talented people with different experience from Danish cuisine came together. Sommeliers Simon Olesen and Rasmus Amdi Larsen, the former head chef at restaurant Schønnemann, Karina Pedersen, and the Formel B restaurant group. In Palægade, close to Kongens Nytorv, Danish open-faced sandwiches are king – at least for lunch. Go here for all the classics like sole, kartoffelmad – potatoes on bread, chicken salad, and tartare. Visit later at night to experience a meal that has morphed into a modern tasting menu, with the former head chef at Formel B, Magnus Mondrup, in charge.
Note: This version of Restaurant Palægade tragically burned down on March 11th, 2020. Olesen, Larsen, and Pedersen went on to open Møntergade, while the Formel B group rebuilt Restaurant Palægade 2.0.
