Restaurant Uformel

Restaurant uformelA few months ago, I ate at the restaurant Uformal located in the center of Copenhagen. The restaurant opened a few years ago and is the “little sister” to the Michelin restaurant formel B.

The restaurant is modern and beautifully decorated and the place has got a little edge. The restaurant is cozy and it’s a nice place to be at.

Unfortunately, the pictures were not as good as the desire was subdued and tabletop reflected.
Restaurant uformelMy own experience: That evening I ordered a few snacks and some dishes from their autumn menu which also included fallow deer and wild duck.

There is only one thing to say the meat was cooked to perfection and the food tasted fantastic. The staff at the restaurant is sweet, friendly and welcoming. It is a restaurant that I highly
recommend.
Restaurant uformelIn Danish: For et par måneder siden spiste jeg på restaurant Uformel der ligger i centrum af København. Restauranten åbnede for et par år siden og er ”lillesøster” til Michelin-restauranten formel B.

Restauranten er moderne og flot indrettet samtidig med, at stedet har fået lidt kant.
Restauranten er hyggelig og det er et rart sted at være.

Desværre er billederne ikke blevet så gode, da lyst var dæmpet og bordpladen reflekterede.

Mine egne erfaringer: Den aften valgte jeg, at bestille et par snacks og nogle retter fra deres efterårsmenu som bl.a. bestod og dådyr og vild and.

Det er kun et at sige kødet var stegt til perfektion og maden smagte helt fantastisk. Personalet på restauranten er søde, venlig og imødekommende. Det er en restaurant som jeg varmt kan anbefale.

Restaurant Geist

Geist

In 2011 restaurant Geist open at Kongens Nytorv. The Michelin chef Bo Bech is the driver
behind the restaurant and he was previously head chef the famous Michelin-starred restaurant Paustian.

The restaurant is tastefully decorated in dark colors, and a little hard music running in the
background perfectly suited to the place.
At restaurant Geist is it possible to sit both in the bar and at one of the many tables.
To get under the skin of the place we chose to sit at the bar where we could keep up with
everything that was going on in the kitchen.

When I visited the place in 2011, I ordered several dishes such as Brussels sprouts and scallops. The Brussels sprouts leaves were crisp and delicious, and had a light touch of sweet and savory. The scallops were cooked perfectly.

A cocoa sorbet which was perfect in texture, silky and no ice crystals also tasted the fantastic. The chocolate was a bit different than what I just used to, it was not as airy.

My own experiences: Restaurant Geist is an exclusive restaurant serving gourmet food at very high quality. It is restaurant that I highly recommend.

Geist

In Danish: I 2011 åbnede Restaurant Geist ved Kongens Nytorv. I spidsen står Michelin-kokken Bo Bech, som tidligere har drevet den kendte Michelin-restaurant Paustian.

Restauranten er smagefuldt indrettet i mørke farver, og lidt hårdt musik som kører i
baggrunden passer perfekt til stedet.
Hos restaurant Geist er det muligt, at sidde både i baren og ved et af de mange borde.
For, at komme under huden på stedet valgte vi at sidde i baren, hvor vi kunne følge med i alt hvad der foregik i køkkenet.

Da jeg besøgte stedet i 2011, fik jeg bl.a. serveret rosenkål og kammusling.  Disse rosenkålsblade var sprøde og delikate, og havde en let strejf af salt og sødt. Kammuslingen var stegt
perfekt.

En kakaosorbet som var perfekt i konsistensen, silkeblød og ingen iskrystaller også smagte den fantastisk. Chokolademoussen var en smule anderledes end, hvad jeg er lige vant til, den var ikke så luftig.

Mine egne erfaringer: Restaurant Geist er en eksklusiv restaurant der laver gourmetmad af meget høj kvalitet. En restaurant som jeg varmt kan anbefale.

Formel B

Kristian Møller
Michelin chef Kristian Møller

Michelin chef and co-owner Kristian Møller works at restaurant formula B , and the co-owner Joachim Jochumsen works at their second restaurant Sletten. However, they have chosen to hire a head chef at restaurant Sletten.

Appetizer
Beef entrecote with celery and puffed white rice.

In October 2013 I met with Kristian and he told the following about the restaurant.

When Kristian took over the restaurant something new had to be done, so they changed the concept, but it is still classic French. They have not gone Nordic as some of the other
restaurants.

Before the financial crisis everything went well and when the crisis hit they decided to change seat. The menu was changed a little and each dish can be bought at 130 Danish kroner, dishes that they would like to eat themselves. The dishes should be clean and simple, so you can see what you are eating.

Stenbiderrogn
Danish lumpfish roe with horseradish cream, crunchy vegetables and smoked cheese.

They were allowed by the Michelin Guide to keep the Michelin star. The concept is not locked and it gives a different flexibility. The focus is on ingredients, quality and honest expression.

formula B uses seasonal ingredients, they are biodynamic or organic fx. They dry the leafs and use the stick for a tartar. Visually the dishes must have an organic expression.

By using current vegetables, the dynamic and the chefs are happier.
They regularly change dishes which keeps the menu exciting. Their concept today is to go out and socialize, where water and wine placed on the table.

After the interesting talk I was served the several dishes.

Tatar
Tatar of salted beef top round with grilled salads, black pepper and pickled onions.

My own experience: I have eaten a few times at formula B. The food is great and the service is top notch. What makes this Michelin restaurant special is that you do not have to order a set menu. You can put your own menu and the number of dishes together from their tasty menu. It is a restaurant that I can highly recommend.

Sortfodsskinke
Warm egg yolk with black foot ham, crispy Jerusalem artichokes and Karl Johan emulsion.

In Danish: Michelin-kokken og medejer Kristian Møller arbejder på restaurant formel B, og hans medejer Joachim Jochumsen arbejder på deres anden restaurant Sletten. Dog, har de valgt at ansætte en køkkenchef på restaurant Sletten.

I oktober 2013 mødtes jeg med Kristian Møller og han fortalte følgende om restauranten.

Da Kristian overtog restauranten skulle der ske noget nyt, så de lavede konceptet om, men det er stadig klassisk fransk. De er ikke gået nordisk som nogle af de andre restauranter.

Inden finanskrisen gik det godt, da krisen ramte, sadlede de om, og lavede konceptet om til
retter der kostede 130 kr. Retter som de selv har lyst til at spise. Retterne som skulle være rene og enkle, så man kan se hvad man spiser.

Beef
Organic beef from Birkemose farm with new Danish potatoes, wild garlic and greaves.

De fik lov af Michelin-guiden at beholde Michelin stjernen. Konceptet er ikke låst og det giver en anden fleksibilitet. Der er fokus på råvarer, kvalitet og et ærligt udtryk.

Formel B bruger sæsonens råvarer, de er biodynamiske eller økologiske, hvor de f.eks. tørre bladet og bruger stokken til en tatar. Visuelt skal retterne have et organisk udtryk.

Ved at bruge aktuelle råvarer er det dynamisk og kokkene er gladere.

De udskifter jævnligt enkelte retter af gangen. Deres koncept i dag er, at gå ud og hygge sig, hvor vand og vin stilles på bordet.

Herefter fik jeg serveret forskellige retter.

Mine egne erfaringer: Jeg har spist en del gange på formel B. Maden er fantastisk og servicen er helt i top. Det der gør Michelin-restauranten speciel er, at du behøver ikke at bestille en fast menu. Du sammensætter selv din menu og antallet af retter ud fra deres velsmagende menukort. Det er en restaurant som jeg varmt kan anbefale.
