Quote, Copenhagen

Kongens Nytorv 16
Denmark 1050
Tel: 45 33 32 51 51's insider take:

Constantly packed with everyone from art students to investment bankers, Quote's buzzy success has less to do with its location, right on the central Kongens Nytorv, than with its stress on a perfected menu of global Danish brasserie food. The café and restaurant turn out a succession of glossy dishes, from sweet Nordic shrimp and scallops stuffed inside oversize ravioli purses to a grilled beef tournedos finally reunited with its sorely missed throwback, béarnaise sauce. Not that the requisite touches of Olsen drama are totally missing. Hanging above all those piled plates in the café are two epic-size crystal globes, simulating upscale disco balls, and in the restaurant proper, Venetian glass chandeliers add a pastel, baroque shimmer to the standard-issue Danish modern decor.
