Amass 2nd Visit — Copenhagen (6/2015)


It had been almost exactly one year since my first visit to Amass.  With my visit again to Copenhagen, I decided to try it again and see if anything was different, now that they had more than a year being in business.  Since I had been there before, I knew the bus route details to get to the restaurant, or so I thought.  When I arrived at the bus stop to make my connection, I saw the next bus departure time as 44 minutes.  When I looked at the posted schedule, I saw that the bus only runs hourly, something I did not remember.  If I waited for the next bus, I would be late.  Fortunately, I remembered that during the day, the harbor ferry bus has a stop near the restaurant (terminates its run there), and the stop was nearby.  Despite the posted schedule, the ferry came and brought me to the restaurant at just the right time.

The menu line-up was different than a year ago.  The option of ordering the extended menu was the same, so I went with that option again.

They don’t have a wine-by-the-glass list.  I told my server my wine preferences, and he brought a glass of a Chardonnay from Jura in France, which worked fine with my meal.

Amass — Copenhagen (6/2014)


Amass opened a little less than a year ago. I heard about it in an article on Copenhagen food and new restaurants being started up by Noma alumni.   Its location is a little off the beaten path.  It seemed like it would be a bit more casual place judging from their website.  Since it had a relatively short menu, I thought it would fit well for a late dinner after lunch at Geranium.  I had no problem booking as a solo diner on their website.  They also advertised a “community table”, serving their long menu and meant to bring together groups of non-acquaintances to share the dining experience.  The restaurant is only about an 11-minute bus ride from the Christianhavn Metro stop, but it seemed a world away from Copenhagen proper.  The restaurant even grows many of its herbs and garnishes right outside the back door.
