New luxury bistro offers everything good from the countryside
On May 9th, Restaurant Mark opened its doors to a new, large, and completely renovated restaurant on Axeltorv in the heart of Copenhagen. The vision at Mark is to serve modern bistro-style dishes based on French kitchen techniques and seasonal Danish ingredients
Let’s be honest. The Marguerite Route does not make a turn past Axeltorv for a reason. But having said that, a lot has happened to the square through the years. Since then, the hotdog stands have received competition from good restaurants such as Restaurant Trio, Tivoli Food Hall, Sticks’n’Sushi, and now the newly opened Restaurant Mark too.
Denmark is a country that abounds in good produce. All the goods from the country, the sea, and the many talented producers around Denmark is the basis for Restaurant Mark, which opened at the beginning of May.
“We have been looking forward to opening a new, inviting, and beautiful restaurant based on good, local ingredients, sharp gastronomy, and exquisite hospitality. Denmark has a myriad of good local producers who ambitiously and dedicatedly produce everything from exciting beer, wine, good cheeses, charcuterie, and other delicacies. The goal of Restaurant Mark has been to create a restaurant that has it as its foundation in the above and combines it with a high and ambitious culinary level,” says Rasmus Pors, partner in Madkastellet, that runs the restaurant.
Modern almanac kitchen
The food at Restaurant Mark can best be described as modern bistro-style based on French techniques. The kitchen is an almanac kitchen that follows the seasons and picks up vegetables, fish, meat, and other items right when they are at their very best. Although most ingredients are Danish, the dishes are constantly updated, reinterpreted, and often served with an international twist. Behind the stove, the head chef, Bendix Sixhøj Laursen, controls the battle. He has experience as head chef at Restaurant Radio, just as he has previously been deputy head and assistant head chef at Søllerød Kro. In addition, his resume offers employment at Bistro Boheme and Ruths Hotel.
For everyone – all day
The restaurant is for everyone who appreciates solid food with excellent taste, a beautiful wine cellar, and high-level informal hospitality. Mark is open for breakfast, where you can drop in on your way to work for a breakfast meeting or to relax on the weekends. The same goes for lunch and dinner every day of the week. If you fancy a drink, a glass of wine, or a beer, the bar is open with delicious bar snacks and small dishes. Then, when the weather is right, you jump outside in the sun and relax with a view of city life.
