When NOMA (the #1 ranked restaurant in the world) closed, another door opened; that door literally led into the adjacent building. Located on Christianshavns Canal in Copenhagen, 108 is making its name as the chic new sister restaurant of NOMA.
Awarded a Michelin star in its first 6 months of opening - something almost unprecedented - 108 makes Nordic cuisine approachable, modern, and playful.
Reuniting with my college roomie from France for the first time since 2012, this place hit the bill for a fun and special meal out to share with her and her partner.
Dishes at 108 are ordered a la carte. Diverting from the prix fixe menu, atypical for a fine dining restaurant in Copenhagen, allows the diner to curate their own experience. This also makes 108 more affordable than many of the other Michelin restaurants in the city.
To taste as many whimsical bites as possible, we ordered everything on the menu except for the large, family-style dishes. So in total, we shared 7 savory dishes and 3 sweet dishes. We also ate a lot of the house-made sourdough bread with house-churned butter. YUM.
The small, yet thoughtfully curated dishes surprised us with their unusual combination of ingredients and generous use of flowers and other foraged ingredients.
What follows is the full spread of what we shared.
