A Copenhagen Culinary Gem: Höst
There are some places that make you feel at home as soon as you enter, no matter how far from your actual home you might be. So why is it that some places evoke that feeling while others don’t? On a recent visit to Copenhagen, I stopped by the restaurant Höst – which fuses the rural, rustic cuisine traditional to Denmark with New Nordic innovation – and I instantly felt like I could linger there forever. Every little detail of its design was so thoughtful and cosy, exuding an irresistible warmth despite its minimal aesthetic. And, of course, there’s nothing like the glorious smell of roast vegetables and garlic emanating from the kitchen to make you feel right at home. If you’re ever in Copenhagen, be sure to have a meal there. (You’ll have a much better chance of getting a table than at Noma!)
