Restaurant Geist, Copenhagen
For our first night in Copenhagen we had dinner at Geist. The place has a very cool vibe. It is located underneath this passage to the right. Kind of sets the tone.
These lights hang through out the restaurant over certain tables. There are a few booths covered with a grey felt, a wood floor and steel bars. Just from the look of this photo above you get a feel for the place. Very neutral yet groovy and cool at the same time. I might have loved the decor and feel more than the food.
The food is tapas style. The first half of the menu is smaller portions and the second half is larger portions. You can mix and match, share, or whatever you want. Definitely interesting concept but everything just tasted a little flat. I started with the avocado with rossini caviar. Thinly sliced pieces of avocado covered in an almond oil and a dollop of caviar on top.
Someone else had the cauliflower with black truffle. Looks beautiful. Thinly sliced pieces of raw cauliflower over a black truffle sauce. The sauce just didn't absorb into the caufilower so the flavor was just not that interesting.
We had a great time. Love this place but as I said didn't love the food. Would go back for a drink in a second.
