Copenhagen 2 nights
I will be in Copenhagen for 2 nights...arriving at 10pm on nov 30 and leaving Sunday dec2.
I am looking for recommendations for late night dining (Geist.) for Friday night. I am looking for Scandinavian cuisine or new Scandinavian cuisine, smorbord, etc. (not kabobs,pizza on fri)
Any recommendations would be appreciated. although I know I would enjoy Noma, I don't want to spend an obscene amount of money, and think i can have a somewhat similar experience at a lesser known and less expensive restaurant. I do realise copenhagen is expensive, that said, I still want good food. Is MR still around? I have thought about trying to book a table for sat night at... Geranium, fiskebaren...

Mmm. Yeah, usually that's the case.. but in this case, sadly, you can't..
Geranium is practically on the same price level as Noma so you don't go there to save money. I still recommend Geranium wholeheartedly cause it's boisterous and has a very professional vibe.
I'd stay away from Relae too. I know it's cheap and that's it's regarded as very trendy at the moment in the restaurant business but it's simply not star material to me, taste wise.
I just spent a few days in Copenhagen and Stockholm, you can find my feedback here - http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/874590 .
I highly recommend Geranium but there is nothing about the place that is not expensive... if you've crossed Noma off because of that I'd say you'll want to eliminate Geranium for the same reason.
