It’s becoming one of the functional rules of the itinerant restaurant-goer’s life that, on arriving in a new town, one should immediately check out the old meat market. Unfortunately I’m not currently planning a trip to Copenhagen but if I was, I would definitely be dining in this restaurant, Kul.
The Copenhagen market is called Kødbyen (it translates, pleasingly, as Meatsville) and is a small architectural jewel. Though it’s become a hip “quarter” for bars, restaurants and an excellent craft beer scene, the governing authority has ensured that nothing can be insensitively modernized and that some of the traditional trades still take place. Tonight, a grazing herd of hipsters will be slinging hogs on to hooks. If you, too, are a fan of seared meat, niche ales and interwar Danish modernism, Meatsville might just be your personal nirvana. With its moody charcoal blue grays and minimalist design this place is simply beautiful!
