Here is Day 2 of my trip to Copenhagen. I didn’t realize how much was packed in one day until I started going through my photos. Headlines in blue are a link to take you to more photos.
My first of two stops at Meyer’s Bakery. I went for the pastries the first time then went back to try some of the bread. I could spend a lifetime writing odes to Danish rye bread, rugbrød, but then I’d never get though the rest of my photos, which is the reason I created this blog in the first place.
A lovely lunch by Torsten Vildgaard with water views at Studio at The Standard.
Boats and cafes line the Nyhavn waters. I didn’t want to end up with a bunch of stiff, posed photos of myself or the postcard photos that everyone else takes so brace yourself because I took some selfies and once I started, I couldn’t stop.
We met a few friends before dinner at the bar at D’Angleterre Hotel.
The first official event for the Opinionated About Dining Awards Weekend was a phenomenal dinner by three 3-star Michelin restaurant chefs at Geranium.
Having cocktails at Ruby is like being at a friend’s (nice) apartment during a party. Spending no money on advertising and having no sign in front, Ruby made it to #34 on the World’s 50 Best Bars list in 2015. Different menus are offered in different rooms so be sure to have a look around before settling in.
John’s Hotdog Deli
Imagine pillowy, soft rolls that don’t interrupt the other flavors allowing for the focus to be on the gourmet toppings. Danish hotdogs are all about the snap and the combinations of tangy, spicy, sweet, crunchy garnishes. The traditional Danish dog has apple ketchup, mustard, remoulade, chopped onions, fried onions, and sweet pickles. There are as many Danish dog varieties as there are types of pizza as well as debates on traditional versions vs gourmet toppings. But sorry to say my Danish friends, Chicago dogs are king if you’re talking about the actual hot dog.
Things I Saw Along the Way
Here are some various sightings from Day 2 of my visit. Nothing too earth-shattering to share with you, but as I have said elsewhere, I am using this blog as motivation to get my photos off all my hard drive(s) and do something with them. These are the nine I saved.
