One of the latest gourmet offerings to open in Aarhus, restaurant Ghrelin is named after the human “hunger hormone”. Located in the city’s new dockland developments on Aarhus Ø, Ghrelin is headed by two of the city’s most celebrated chefs, Anders Kuk Kristensen and Nicklas Friis Nielsen.
The 30-seat gourmet restaurant is described in the Michelin Guide as “A sleek, modern two-roomed restaurant with a semi-open kitchen and confident friendly service.” Ghrelin offers 3, 5 and 7-course tasting menus with an emphasis on organic produce.
Aarhus Ø is currently under major development with landmark projects, including the city’s future waterfront conference centre. The restaurant is located in a residential building called Z-Huset, which is set to become neighbour to Denmark’s tallest residential building.
