Carina is a receptionist at Hotel Alexandra, she is studying to become a teacher. She visited AOC (Aarø & Co) with her father…
The visit to the Michelin restaurant AOC was an experience quite beyond the ordinary. By a large, well-endowed wine display, we were greeted by a gracious servant who took our coats and led us then to dinner.
The restaurant buzzes “feinscmeckerei” and perfection. The decor is minimalistic, but with a good sense of classic solid furniture and a comfortable lightning.
We chose the “sensory evening menu”, a 7-course meal with accompanying wine list, composed by Sommelier Christian Aarø (owner). The composition of wine and food was unbelievable and a great experience within itself. We had bubbles, smoke, heat, cold, colors – Different flavors to touch all the senses. The food was fabulous! The price of the menu with wine is 1795 DKK – Tip: Do buy the wine menu to complete the experience!
The service was on top! During our 5-hour evening at AOC, we were influenced by various people, both from the kitchen, administration and obviously talented servants. Christian Aarø (owner and sommelier) was our personal attention sommelier during our dinner. He made the wine menu for us as a unique experience, as we got his insights – of all of his thoughts behind the choices of wine to suit this sensory menu.
The restaurant AOC – is not just a restaurant with good food. It is a culinary journey – hard to live up to! AOC gets top marks and is recommendable to all who appreciate cuisine, wine and the perfect combination.
