Copenhagen has always been famous for its culture. Now it is home to the 'world's best restaurant' too, says Nick Trend.
Copenhagen is on a roll. In a city more famous for art and design, food has suddenly come to the fore. Last month, Noma, one of its many top-end restaurants, was deemed "the best in the world". At the same time, the subtle and elegant paintings of the city's best loved artist, Christen Købke, have been given star billing in a major exhibition at the National Gallery in London, reminding us that Copenhagen's museums and galleries have some of the best art collections in Europe.
