If amass is our "fine dining" night , id like to try something more middle ground and casual. We're two co-workers from portland, oregon... so nothing super high end. Host looks good, as does pony.
Any great beer spots? Ive got mikkeller bar on the list.
Any good casual seafood / oyster lunch spots? Kodybyens fiskebar? Is this better for lunch or dinner?
Is copenhagen street food more of a lunch spot ? I read about some chef from noma making tacos, really want to check this out.
I'd say that Christian Puglisi's restaurants are pretty laid-back and rather cheap: Relæ, Manfreds & Vin and Bæst. The same goes for Oubæk's restaurants: Barbie, Melée, Gorilla and the Retour chain.
Seafood: Try Fishmarket, Kødbyens Fiskebar or Oysters & Grill. If someone recommends you Krog's Fiskerestaurant, don't believe them. The place used to be really good back in the days, but since they got new owners the place has been addressing the lowest common denominator.
Hija de Sanchez is in Torvehallerne, not Copenhagen Street Food (aka Papirøen). It is run by the former pastry chef of Noma, Rosario Sanchez. It is really good, and they often have some really impressive guest chefs (alas always in working hours, making it difficult for me to try it.). They'll have guest chefs in September on the 12th, 13th, 17th, 21st and 27th. Three tacos for DKK 100 is a steal given the quality.
