So Saturday morning we bid adieu to our "wedding trip" hotel 71 Nyhavn and walked our luggage two blocks to the hotel where the cruise passengers would be staying... check in was hassle free (surprise) but the place was teeming with people - our group is only 98 total so it wasn't just us- this is a big hotel and this is a busy month-
we went to the room and were pleased to find that we had a view of the water- and "paper island" across the water (the latest hot spot in CPH)
we decided the weather was iffy and so we would just grab a small lunch at the hotel cafe overlooking the water- they made me an excellent Aperol Spritz and had very nice oysters (pricey!) and I had a salad and Phil a sandwich I think-
we followed with a lazy afternoon reading until we left for dinner (oh we did pick up our information packet about the city tour the next day and the "bags out" time etc...)
then it was time to head out to dinner at Studio at the Standard- and to meet up with all the Hansens- Poul & Lene and Poul's nephew Martin and Martin's wife Susan and kids Thomas & Emma... three generations of Hansens! (and with regards sent from Poul's mother!)
the is the building where the restaurant is located (along with several other dining venues and music clubs)
we went for the "briefer" menu and the kids were able to limit their course to three but of course everyone started with "snacks" of a variety of things-
Thomas and Martin are served from the vase on the table LOL- the flower removed and the water used in the small bowl which had
chips and dip below-
quail egg I think- LOL - I do wish you got a summary at the end :-(
ebelskiver and a spread -
the view from our table- as the sun set!
above- before using pipette to dress the dish and after (below)
above was my first attempt at panoramic photo. it was a fail because Susan and Emma somehow went missing - but there it is for what it is worth. Poul on the left and Lene to the right of Phil and next to Martin, at least are recorded for posterity...
and no it wasn't toothpaste in those containers - it was sweet flavors to put on your madeleines...
BTW here is the menu- LOL
