Copenhague restaurant on Paris’ fabulous, if hectic, Champs-Elysees, is one of the city’s premier restaurants. With a portrait of Queen Margarethe II supervising the bright, elegant dining room, you would expect fine dining, Danish cuisine and superb service and right you’d be. Copenhague has been here for fifty years and, though the dining room had a spruce-up a few years ago, the menu remains a class act with no impetus to change. The talented Georges Landriot combines the best of French technique with the finest Danish ingredients to create dishes like a fishy gourmet platter to start, main course of whole line-caught sea bass flambé with aquavit (for two), and dessert of round-grained ballila rice soaked in milk with cinnamon and vanilla and ice almond milk. French wines share the list with the best Danish beers. The sunny terrace is a Paris secret – perfect for business or romance. The dining room seats up to 55, the terrace 50 and a small lounge accommodates up to 16.
