ofoco, together with the design company Menu and Norm Architects have created a traditional New Nordic restaurant anno 2012, split over two floors there is space for up to 100 diners.
There’s no interior decoration as such. It is the raw wooden furniture, the walls finished in a myriad of calming greys and the specially commissioned tableware that play the leading role. A role that the food, selected according to the produce available during the different Nordic seasons, of course shares and shines in.
Whether it is summer or winter, Höst offers a fixed three-course menu that you can combine with the standard wine menu or pair with the upgraded selection of wines. There is also a small à la carte menu to choose from.
Höst has already won three international design awards, including the award for the World’s Best-Designed Restaurant at the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards. David Kester, a director at the publishing house, Thames & Hudson, was a member of the judging panel and gave this reason why Höst was a deserving winner.
“Restaurant Höst has brought a bit of rural Scandinavia into urban Copenhagen ... It gives a real sense of what it is to be Danish.”
