  • Same New City - Food experiences at unexpected locations.
  • Host With The Most - Acclaimed Sommeliers, Restaurant Managers and hosts bring a small group of guests for a night of good stories at their favourite restaurant.
  • Eat the Beat - What kind of music serves as inspiration for the restaurants? And how does it taste? 
  • Eating Crafts - Chefs are joined by farmers, butchers, bakers, spirit- and wine makers in a celebration of good food craftmanship.
  • My Hood is Your Hood - Events where we salute and honour neighborhood and all the unique boroughs of Copenhagen.
  • Next Generation of Food - Cooking and food experiences for the youngest.
