Now, if you want to try out something different, head over to VeVe located in a beautiful old warehouse in Østerbro. The menu is completely vegetarian, and here the seasons determine what is served on your plate. The newly opened restaurant is run by Kiin Kiin, widely known as the only Thai restaurant outside Thailand holding a Michelin star. The decor features beautiful stone floors, hinting at building's history as a bread factory. The name VeVe stands for Vegetarian dishes from all over the World. (Vegetarisk Verdenskøkken in Danish).

Tromsø

Charly's Restauraunt is back! During the 1970s and 1980s the legendary joint was known as the best place to go dancing anywhere in the city. Now, after a complete renovation, Charly's is back on the map and eager to reclaim the throne. The new Charly's is an intimate à la carte restaurant with a cosy atmosphere. You'll find planked steak on the menu, and you can still get your moves on - they've kept the dance floor intact.
