The whimsical decorations on the tables created with crystal containers filled with a variety of vegetables added a warm homey touch to the crisp white linens and soft wood panels.

SpecialtiesTartare de St. Jacques au Caviar ( scallops tartar with caviar) and reindeer The reindeer was particularly tender and tasty with a delightful sauce and a fine anchor for a great menu.
Wine And Spirits DetailsWine, beer, and aquavit. The aquavit was a perfect ending to the meal and added that touch of Denmark.
FoodThe artfully presented chef’s menu was a treat. Each well proportioned seafood dish built on the one before it until we reached the delicious reindeer finale. We began with a light codamusebouche (pre appetizer). A tasty salmon roe spread followed. The oxtail duckfoi gras chestnut soup presented an exquisite combination of flavors. Even the John Dory, a serious cold water fish, tasted light as a feather. The sommelier assisted us in the selection of a white and red wine combination to match the courses of the tasting menu. Bread selections included cumin, nut and crunchy breads. Copenhague has retainedmaster cheese purveyorPhilip Olivier to develop their cheese assortment.It was artfully delivered and memorable. Dessert was a delightful pear ice cream, passion fruit and cookie medley.
