Amass, Copenhagen, 5/30/14

Located in a reclaimed warehouse in the middle of nowhere on a waterfront, it was worth finding. Someone told us that the land around there has a prohibition on new buildings so reclaimed space is it and the dull exterior would not warn you how modern and slick the interior space is finished out.

We sat at a shared table of 6 that gets an extended tasting of their menu and once again we opted for their recommended wine pairings. We were with a couple from Vienna and a local couple and all spoke good English and were so very friendly. The couple from Copenhagen had lots of info about their city to share and it made for very interesting conversation. Acoustics, even in the large space, were well thought out and made it easy to talk amongst ourselves and made the evening of several hours fly by. The downside is I was less attentive to my notes and am sketchy on descriptions now!

They restaurant won me over with their endless supply of hot flat bread that I believe was made from potatoes, but everything was tasty. The monkfish liver which I have not always enjoyed was a velvet texture and mild taste. The chicken and beef dishes were succulent, the white asparagus tender and well paired, the palate cleanser was a pile of icy something that seemed perfect at the time.The rhubarb dessert was very nice but the green muffins that followed were not a taste I cared for. Overall a winner!
