Your guide to the best restaurants and hotels from around the world
>> The Paul
From a glass of Bollinger champagne as an aperitif to the very last course at dinner (a rhubarb tart with tea ice cream on caramel), dining at The Paul is a highlight of a visit to Copenhagen. Located in the middle of Tivoli, and only open during the park's season (mid-May to mid-September), this exquisite dining room in a glass-encircled pavilion seems to be favored by everyone in the entertainment world, and it witnesses unannounced visits from members of the Danish royal family. A great deal of the restaurant's success comes from the inventiveness and pure enthusiasm of chef/co-owner Paul Cunningham, originally from England and now a happy Danish transplant and a celebrity chef in the country. He takes traditional Danish cuisine and combines influences from other regions; for example, succulent sea bass might be served with Spanish olives and almonds in oil and paired with a crisp Spanish Riesling. The seven-course prix-fixe menu is lovingly prepared from an open kitchen overlooking a chef's table, and service is flawless, with the right amount of explanation regarding courses and wine pairings. Giant white candles and American Beauty roses are everywhere, even in the washrooms -- where you'll also find disposable toothbrushes and toothpaste.
