One of Copenhagen’s hidden gems is set to gain a new lease of life as a sustainable restaurant.
The old windmill on the ramparts by Christianshavn (Lille Mølle from 1783) will become home to Lola, an inclusive and affordable restaurant where some of the culinary workers are recruited from the margins of society and offered professional training.
The restaurant is the brainchild of Kamilla Seidler who in 2016 was hailed as the World’s Best Female Head Chef at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants – Latin America. She headed restaurant Gustu in La Paz, Bolivia, which was established by Noma co-founder Claus Meyer.
The organic cuisine is inspired by the world but gives special emphasis to vegetables. The old windmill has previously been used as a restaurant and offers classic salons with room for 45-50 diners in addition to outdoor service in the leafy garden.
The restaurant opens in November 2019.
