Ten names released as new part of Terminal 2 prepares to open
As the new part of Terminal 2 prepares to open with 25 new shops, cafés and restaurants, Copenhagen Airport says it is ready to welcome “the latest gastronomic leaders from the Copenhagen food scene”.
The first ten restaurants to open in the new area have been named, including local favourite restaurants and bars Mikkeller, The Bird & Kissmeyer, Tapa del Toro and Cock’s & Cows.
For more than two out of three travellers, shopping and dining is an important part of the travel experience, the airport says as it expands its range of food and beverage. It is also an increasing important source of revenues.
This means passengers will soon be able to taste specialty gin, craft beer and micro brews on tap as well as the ‘best burger in town’ when the new area in Terminal 2 opens in June.
“We want to offer travellers an authentic experience by offering the best from our ‘local heroes’ – the best Danish restaurants and bars that we know from the vibrant culinary scene of Copenhagen,” says Lise Ryevad, director of airport sales.
“At the same time, we will continue being the place where travellers can find successful international brands. Every year we conduct up to 100,000 passenger interviews and we use the knowledge we gain from these interviews to find the best mix of offers.”
Best of Copenhagen
The Danish microbrewery Mikkeller is among the new names, along with the locally famous Vietnamese restaurant LêLê, burger restaurant Cock’s & Cows, pizza at Gorm’s, grills at Steffs Place, beer experts The Bird & Kissmeyer, Spanish tapas joint Tapa del Toro, the deli Retreat and international names Pret A Manger and Espresso House. The first units will open in June.
