This beloved central cafe manages to be both trendy and enduring thanks to the fact that they actually have great food and drinks, as well as a minimalist, comfortable interior. Sit on the street and people-watch, or take a seat inside and get cosy with their small, intimate tables. Expert tip: try the thick slice of homemade banana bread and make sure to get it toasted!
Renown for their lasagne (you gotta try it!), Barabba is a must-visit in the city for the great Italian menu, fun atmosphere, and the fact that the kitchen stays open…late. Late late. When fashion week parties, and after-parties, end, you can head to Barabba for a meal and you won’t have to rush. The food and drink are excellent, and the service is tops.
Former noma-alum Rosio Sanchez has created a Mexican food empire with a wide range of food offerings, from her taco stand at Torvehallerne, to a sit-down taqueria, to her upscale restaurant Sanchez. Hija de Sanchez Cantina straddles a middle ground between casual and upscale, with a delicious selection of freshly-made tacos, tostadas, and salads. Their wine list is good, but their mezcal list is great. If you’re in the mood for a cocktail with dinner, their La Hija Margarita, complete with chile de arbor syrup, is the best.
