Malling & Schmidt
Husband and wife team Rikke Malling and head chef Thorsten Schmidt have achieved notoriety with their namesake restaurant since 2005. A varied menu changes monthly and highlights New Nordic cuisine: old and new cooking styles are balanced (a trademark of chef Schmidt) utilizing ingredients from the Danish region and organic farms that grow fruits and vegetables specifically for the restaurant. Malling & Schmidt is housed in a spacious villa with an open kitchen where light wood furnishings and rustic linens are juxtaposed against the formal architecture of the building. Standout dishes include langoustine with gooseberry sauce and corn ice cream with herbs and flowers (which guests grind themselves).
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
