The corona-proof dining greenhouses that made the news in the Netherlands recently have now also been discovered in Denmark. The ‘idea from Amsterdam’, according to Danish media, has been picked up in Copenhagen where two pop-up, corona-proof ‘greenhouse restaurants’ have opened.
Through the efforts of, among others, Claus Meyer, the concept is now also being tested in Denmark. Meyer works together with greenhouse company Juliana Drivhuse, and has found two places in Copenhagen where he can realize this remarkable idea.
A pop-up restaurant with four greenhouses will be placed in the neighborhood of Frederiksberg, and the one near the harbor will have eight greenhouses. The idea behind the concept is to offer optimal protection against the coronavirus while at the same time providing a possibility for dining out in a ‘post corona era’.
The two pop-up restaurants will not only differ in location but also in the food they offer. At the greenhouses in Frederiksberg, in front of Meyers Deli, you can order food from 9 in the morning till dinnertime at the à-la-carte restaurant. Reservations will need to be made in advance.
At the harbor, the menu is made by the chef: a five-course menu for breakfast and a six-course menu for dinner. Chef Anika Madsen had the following to say about the menu: “If we don’t think about local and seasonal foods during this crisis, we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.” Each greenhouse can hold up to four people.
