Copenhagen: Relae

We researched based on unique destinations with the focus is food but the experience of a vibrant city that has so much to see and do.

One of the few Michelin-starred restaurants in the world that’s also certified organic, Copenhagen’s Relae has been raising the bar for sustainably run restaurants ever since chef Christian Puglisi and front-of-house manager Kim Rossen opened it in 2010. Puglisi, an alum of Rene Redzepi’s Noma, has been clearly influenced by his groundbreaking predecessor: The space eschews fussy details, and the food displays a fanatical devotion to showcasing Scandinavian ingredients and techniques. Many of the restaurant’s supplies come from its own organic farm, with the rest sourced from other organic, local, and small-scale farms in the region. That pride in the local community extends well beyond the food, with beer sourced from a local organic brewer and plates made by an area ceramicist. Expect dishes like Danish new potatoes in stinging nettle purée, pork with Jerusalem artichokes, and sage ice cream with rhubarb compote.
