In 2011, seven years after TV chef and gastronomic entrepreneur Claus Meyer opened Noma with René Redzepi, Meyer decided to open his fourth restaurant, Radio in Frederiksberg.
At Radio, you can try some new gastronomy at a more down-to-earth level than at Nomaand without having to consult your financial advisor. You can get three courses for DKK 300 or five courses for DKK 400. The food is New Nordic and draws inspiration from the organic vegetables that they grow on a great, big field outside of Copenhagen, where they harvest around 80 different crops.
