Marchal CopenhagenWhere we're eating now: Marchal
We think this qualifes as crushing it. With less than a year under their belt, restaurant Marchal within the grand dame Hotel d'Angleterre in Copenhagen, was awarded a coveted Michelin star. Kind of like the rookie getting the MVP award, Lupita Nyong'o winning the Oscar, a freshman congressman winning the Presidential seat.....you get our drift. Led by Executive Chef Ronny Emborg, who cut his teeth at foodie AOC, Marchal has the confidence of a long-time established restaurant, with their perfecly executed and presented Nordic and French-inspired cuisine. In a city where the culinary space is highly competitive, we were impressed with the lighly cooked scallop with goat cheese, haricots verts and paper thin rye courtons in a dill vinaigrette. We wanted to double down on the starter, until our main course of lightly browned turbot in beets and sour plums came and rocked our world. Heck, we were impressed by the bread, which had a perfectly crispy outside, and a doughy, light yet dense center, which we liberally used to spread the butter. So much for gluten and dairy-free, but worth the splurge. We didn't think we had room for dessert until our arm was twisted, for the not-your-31 flavors strawberry ice cream.
