Next-door Kadeau used to be Copenhagen’s affordable entry-level option into the city’s New Nordic gourmet scene, but that place has since gone decidedly upscale. Eldorado, however, is owned by the same guys – the kitchen is even run by Kadeau co-founder Theis Brydegaard – and takes over as their proposition for the gourmet-on-a-“budget” experience.
While retaining the lauded neighbour’s commitment to New Nordic principles, they serve up a more experimental and playful cuisine here, adding a lot of Asian inspiration and touches. The menu, changed on a daily basis, might be closer to brasserie-fare than the vanguard of fine dining – expect anything from mac’n’cheese to bok choy – but it’s plenty tasty and entertaining.
The venue itself is also entertaining with its neon-lighting and loud electronic music that lends a feel that’s more hipster bar than dining hotspot. And talking about bar, there’s a long bar that serves up cocktails so feel free to arrive early for an aperitif. Great for an informal night out with friends or colleagues.
