Mind blowing! Those are the first two words that register after an unbelievable dining experience at the newly opened Alchemist in Copenhagen. After 2 years of construction in a 25,000 square foot warehouse, we’ve arrived at one of the most ambitious restaurants ever created that forever changes the landscape of fine dining. When reservations opened up, all available seats sold out within 3 minutes with a 7,000-person waitlist. It is essentially the most hyped and sought after restaurant in the world. And by all accounts, the experience at Alchemist exceeded expectations.

A meal here is not simply a meal as you would expect. Rather, it is a 6-hour journey through 5 Acts and 50 Impressions (courses). Guests wander through unique physical spaces including an incredible planetarium-like dome; it felt like we were transported into another world. For instance, we were in Japan watching cherry blossoms fall from trees at one point and sitting under the northern lights at another. There’s art, theater, and science all flooding the senses simultaneously.

The food itself becomes a vehicle for making political statements and Chef Rasmus Munk pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in the kitchen. Some of the issues tackled throughout the meal included immigration, food waste, plastic in the oceans, and how we treat the animals we eat. We love this concept, especially in this day and age where we’re becoming more conscious about the planet. With the genius and execution-ability of Rasmus and his team, the dishes were brilliant and delicious, which is not always the case with molecular gastronomy. Although it’s only been a couple of months since opening, there’s no doubt in our minds that Alchemist has already become the future of fine dining.
