The team is looking forward to welcoming you to Carlsberg Byen

The craftsmen have been working around the clock for the last month, but now the construction dust is finally settling

lay down in Carlsberg Byen, where STUDIO will be ready to welcome you from Thursday 1st of December.

The kitchen is installed, the wine cellar is full to the brim, and Christoffer Sørensen and the team are tramping

impatiently around the box like racehorses before the big gallop. Our 31-year-old head chef,

which the Michelin Guide gave the award as 'Young Chef' of the year last year, has been without a restaurant since

we left The Standard at the turn of the year. Now Christoffer is looking forward to finally being able to use his talent

and create his very own gastronomic story in a new and permanent setting at Ottilia

Jacobsen's Square in Carlsberg Byen. Here, i.a. the artist Frederik Lassen Hesseldahl stood for

the decoration of the premises, which has a touch of both Nordic and Japanese minimalism and maritime


A chef without a kitchen

“It has honestly been a long few months without a kitchen and a restaurant, and the team and I have really missed

the energy we get from creating good experiences for happy guests.

We have been working hard behind the scenes to create a menu that we believe brings something new to the city,

which points directly into STUDIO's gastronomic DNA," says Christoffer, who has held the knives

sharp with participation in several cooking competitions. Among other things, he won a convincing victory

at the new BMW Masters cooking competition in September. Christoffer does not hide that

he strives to win more Danish and international honors and bring the new STUDIO

into the top tier of the country's top restaurants.

"We must be able to compete with the best, and I am convinced that we have the team to be able to do

that. And it's no secret that I would really like to get

the Michelin star back to STUDIO," says Christoffer, who impressed both guests and

reviewers when he took over as head chef at STUDIO in May 2021. It paid off in many ways

lovely feedback from guests, great reviews, a Michelin award, and two nominated dishes

at 'Dish of the Year' competition earlier this year.

The team behind STUDIO

As many of you probably know, Christoffer spent nine years in Claus Henriksen's kitchen at Dragsholm

Castle before he came to STUDIO. The consideration of local ingredients, wild herbs, and fermentations

Christoffer continues to refine his very own expression at STUDIO, where the local ingredients are mixed with

inspiration and techniques from e.g. Japan. The opening menu consists of 13 servings which presents gently

caught fish and shellfish from Danish and Nordic waters, so expect great flatfish, clams,

scallops, and Danish oysters – naturally seasoned with classic luxury ingredients such as truffles and


In the kitchen, Christoffer is accompanied as usual by sous chef Steven Ackermann, and the floor is managed by

Jesper Nielsen and Jacob Lyngse. All faces that many of you will remember from Havnegade.

We are excited and expectant, and we are happy to have such a strong team together for the opening

by STUDIO. We are really looking forward to spoiling you all and showing you what we have been up to.
