“Danes that do it better” by MONOCLE

Monday, October 31st, 2011
“It aims to offer food with a similar local, seasonal perspective but with lower prices than Noma”, writes lifestyle bible, MONOCLE, about our new almost neighbour, Restaurant Radio, in their November issue high-lighting “Danes that do it better”.

“It aims to offer food with a similar local, seasonal perspective but with lower prices than Noma”, writes lifestyle bible, MONOCLE, about our new almost neighbour, Restaurant Radio, in their November issue high-lighting “Danes that do it better”.

“We have visited the aisles, shelves and banquettes of food outlets to find the best retailers,” writes the lifestyle bible MONOCLE in their November issue.
They have come up with some great shops that make customers feel good and have created environments where people actually enjoy being.
Quite a few of them are in Copenhagen, and in our neighbourhood…

Danes That do It Better
In their November issue the guys from trend-bible, MONOCLE, recommend among others:
Lagkagehuset
“A chain of bakeries that’s risen by never allowing quality to sink”.
Løgismose
“A high quality brand that’s spreading its ethos to the most unlikely corners of food retail”.
Joe & the Juice
“The Danish juice bar that isn’t relying on typical Scandinavian style to spread its message”.
Irma
“When Danes want high quality, this is the go-to supermarket”.
Aamanns
“Rye bread with a simple topping might not sound like culinary fireworks. However, at Aamanns it is sparking taste buds”.
Restaurant Radio
“It aims to offer food with a similar local, seasonal perspective but with lower prices than Noma”.

More about “Danes that do it better”
Newly opened Restaurant Radio is right around the corner, and the rest of the outlets are leisurely five to ten minute bike rides, from Avenue Hotel.
Sneak a peek at the November issue of MONOCLE, find it at your corner-shop, or enjoy the trend-setting magazine in front of the cozy fireplace at Avenue Hotel.
