Restaurant NIMB Copenhagen Reviews
Restaurant NIMB Dec 26, 2009
The Restaurant NIMB is a part of the family owned Løgismose Company, which is an all year gastronomic multi house, that is situated in the old Nimb building in Tivoli in the centre of Copenhagen.
The Gastronomic centre houses a delicatessen with its own dairy, bakery, kitchen and chocolate production, an uncompromising gourmet restaurant, a more informal brasserie, social and conference facilities, a large Italian-style wine cellar – and, of course, a small, charming hotel of international standard; all under one roof.
In the Restaurant NIMB which is called their Brasserie you eat in the middle of the kitchen, just next to all the chefs and therefore the food is being made right in front of your nose. There is not space for cheap tricks and no easy short cuts. The raw materials and the handicraft speak for itself and even in spite of this the prices are still on a level where you can manage.
We had been out looking for a restaurant the 26th of December which is a very quite restaurant period in Copenhagen. We had been driving by and we saw that is was open, so we decided to enter there. I had not seen the gastronomic house because it had been constructed while I had been living in Brussels so I was quite anxious to see it.
The restaurant was spacious and airy; and the wonderful lights from Tivoli’s Christmas market were floating in to the restaurant from the windows facing the amusement park. Even though it was the second Christmas day and quite late, there were heavy action around the two of the three huge Molteni stows, that are placed facing the quests in the restaurant.
Compared to many of the other restaurants that I had tried in Tivoli this was a place where you could feel a different passion for the quality of good food.
We were escorted to our seats in the middle of the restaurant next to a group of girl enjoying Champagne in large quantities. The tables were made of solid oak as well as the heavy chairs we were sitting on. Everything is quality the glasses were designed specially from Holmegaard; a well known Danish glass factory, the plates were from the Royal porcelain factory and the knives were from Laguiole.
While we were studying the menu we had a couple glasses of champagne (15€ each); we decided to have the same main course because we both liked the idea of steamed cod (25€ each), Barbara was not so hungry but I went for a Scottish smoked salmon as a starter (16€). In the wine menu I fell for a Sancerre Bernard (45€), which turned out to be nothing but fabulous.
The meal was great and we really enjoyed the quality of the food and the wine.
