Last night kids were out all across Denmark trick or treating in the jovial spirit of another ‘scary’ Halloween.

But the horror was very real for one of Denmark’s premium restaurants, the innovative Michelin star restaurant Grønbech & Churchill, which closed its doors for the final time on Monday night.

Grønbech & Churchill was founded back in 2011 by one of Denmark’s top chefs, Rasmus Grønbech, who gave the restaurant its name because of its proximity to the Churchill Park in Copenhagen.

Attractive location
Until shutting off the ovens for the final time last night, Grønbech & Churchill was among just 20 restaurants in Denmark with a Michelin star.

It has not yet been revealed who or what will take over at the attractive location near the Maersk headquarters on Esplanaden, but another restaurateur is reportedly interested in setting up shop.

While Grønbech & Churchill was given one star in this year’s Michelin Nordic guide, Geranium in Copenhagen became the first Danish restaurant ever to earn three stars.
