TRIED & TESTED
collection of design, art and home accessories

Most striking feature:
Ofcourse I saw the images of Höst Copenhagen popping up on several online interior design magazines and you never know if it’s the same when you arrive on a photogenic address like this. Well I can tell you: it’s even better in real life. The guy who worked at Coffee Collective already told me I had to make a reservation at Höst because the food was so good and not even that expensive. Let’s start with describing the interior: everything is kept back to basic. There’s a lot of wood used in the interior, the large communal tables have huge black industrial lamps hanging above it and the area is filled with beautiful design chairs (some with blankets, others without). There are a few
different spaces at Höst. You can sit at the restaurant area upstairs or in the basement, but there’s also a sort of greenhouse but then in-house. The more romantic seats so the say, because you sit in cozy corners between green plants. The tableware is designed by New Norm and has a digital feel to it. Turn the plates around, scan the QR-code and enter a world of recipes and inspiration. You can also buy some of the table ware items. The soup bowl was so pretty! I regret it that I didn’t buy them. We went there for dinner on Saturday night and choose for the 3 course menu, which turned out to be a 5 course menu (275 kroner per person, that’s 37 euro per person). We started with cod with oyster cream, after wards we got a delicious mushroom soup in those beautiful soup bowls, then there was a brisket of beef with broccoli, peas and chicken skin and we finished with a carrot dessert with white chocolate. The menu changes on a regular base because Höst is Copenhagen’s first urban farming restaurant and they use the ingredients they harvest (the English meaning of Höst is Harvest). Definitely a place to go to!
