WE THINK: Another slam-dunk from the guys behind Kadeau, this small casual eatery on the outskirts of Vesterbro, Copenhagen, offers great value for money. With a 4-course prix fixe that changes daily, a small selection of a la carte dishes, and a wine list that is heavy on bio-dynamic and natural wines, Pony is another recent addition to the growing field of mid-range, progressive young restaurants in Copenhagen, in the same vein as Relæ. As does its older brother, Kadeau, Pony focuses on produce sourced from the tiny Danish island of Bornholm. With lots of Danish staple ingredients such as rye, cabbage, cod and duck, and with bread and butter so good you crave for it long after leaving Pony, the flavours are unmistakably new Nordic. Nothing too off-beat here, but everything incredibly well conceived, delicious and interesting.
