Foreign gastrotourists seldom make it to Århus, Denmarks second largest city. Thats a shame, as the town has much to offer. The latest opening is by chef Palle Enevoldsen, who was an important gastronomic figure in the 90’ies. He made a comeback with restaurant Frederikshøj, and invited young superchef Wassim Hallal aboard. They split up, and now Palle Enevoldsen has launched a new a la carte restaurant in the 1920-building Varna Palæet in the woods on the outskirts of Århus.
I suggest you visit Århus and stay at the Marselis Hotel, near Varna and Frederikshøj. At the latter you will experience haute cuisine and super service, at Varna you will experience a very fine cuisine on the mopre classic direction, paired with fine service and good wines.
The setting is beautiful, with a view to the bay, in the very charming old building. And when you are in Århus, dont miss Malling & Schmidt, the new nordic corner of town.
