56 Degrés – Copenhagen – Denmark Visit Review: 11,6

Overcooked !

With Amass, 56 Degrés is one of Copenhagen’s disappointing restaurants even if he is much less pretentious than his neighbor.

But we are with restaurants that believe they have invented lukewarm water and that, under the pretext that they will make you understand what it means to return to nature, let themselves go to approximations that neither the bill nor the experiments can excuse.

And, indeed, it starts badly with an empty menu. We pay, but we don’t know what we’re eating.

 

The appetizer is colorful. Congratulations!

The entrance is composed of crisp cabbage leaves, of different colors, which cover a section of plaice. A “beurre blanc” is delicately poured over the edges.

Apart from teaching us that cabbage is capable of producing the rainbow colors, nothing is surprising about it. Luckily the fish is good and well cooked. The opposite would be the case in Denmark.

The risotto mushrooms and Jerusalem artichokes are the least pretentious dish and are probably the most balanced. As is too often the case, the risotto is overcooked, but we are not going to ask Danes to know how to cook Italian food…

The pigeon died for nothing. Under the pretext of returning to nature and cooking with straw, smoking, etc., we find ourselves facing a poor dry beast as thin as a rake.

No sauce, no side dish.

Does the following pigeon wing really deserve a comment? Don’t expect a pleasant surprise behind the charred pestle…

We finally arrive at the desserts, the first of which reserves for us a nice gustatory surprise with an apple and Mexican cucumber combination. After all, why not? It’s all about the result.

The next one gives the chef all the freedom to mix vegetables and fruit in a nice burst of…I don’t know what.

The series of wines on tasting fortunately allows you to excite your palate and travel a little more pleasantly.

 

I would remind you that Denmark is a costly country. So an additional 260 euros for two people. So all this is kindly nice but unrelated to what we pay.
