From October, travellers visiting Copenhagen Airport will be able to enjoy a good glass of wine and a light meal at Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas after Kenn Husted has opened a brand new wine and tapas concept in Terminal 3. This time, the man behind some of Copenhagen's best wine bars has given the solid Paté Paté concept, which is known and loved by Copenhagen wine enthusiasts, a twist: the cuisine at the airport is Spanish, but the ingredients are Nordic, the atmosphere is informally Danish and, as usual, the quality of the wine is unmistakable.
"Copenhagen's gastronomy has contributed strongly to putting Denmark on the world map, and naturally this must be reflected at the airport. We want to give travellers a taste of Copenhagen that will appeal to an international audience. Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas fits the bill with a simple and attractive new concept, tailored for the airport and designed to meet travellers' needs for quick and tasty quality food before take-off," says Lise Ryevad, Director of Airport Sales at Copenhagen Airport.
A whiff of Michelin
Besides Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas, Kenn Husted owns the acclaimed Copenhagen wine bars Bibendum, Falernum and Adendum. He has become one of the 10 largest restaurateurs in Copenhagen and is known for his simple concept and informal atmosphere. In other words, it should neither be too posh nor too expensive to drink wine. However, this does not mean that Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas will compromise on quality – on the contrary. In the kitchen, you will find not just one but two chefs, who have previously worked in the Spanish Michelin restaurants elBulli and Arzak and Copenhagen's Era Ora, respectively.
"As an active traveller, I have visited many airports over the years, but never found one that could fully satisfy my need for food and beverages. For me it should be quick and easy, and the focus should be on high quality in pleasant surroundings. Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas offers cosiness and presence. We have a strong team and a good and large selection of food and quality wines, most of which we have hand-picked ourselves and imported directly from producers around the world," says Kenn Husted.
"We know that more than 60% of our customers attach importance to food when travelling. They want a wide selection, high quality at good prices, and above all they appreciate an overall experience that lets them get to the gate without stress. Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas takes an informal approach to good wine and offers tasty and quick food en route. Travellers with little time to spare can even order food to go. We know that this concept will appeal to a great many of our travellers, and we look forward to welcoming them," says Lise Ryevad.
Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas opened on 21 October in Terminal 3 beyond the security check. The menu includes delicious, freshly made pintxos and montaditos at prices from DKK 25 each. The wines have been hand-picked in France, Spain and Austria, with prices starting at DKK 68 per glass.
- Paté Paté in Kødbyen, Copenhagen's old the Meat Packing District, opened in 2009. Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas is a new, sharp concept within the Husted family, tailored for the airport and the needs of travellers. The approach to quality, cosiness and presence remains the same. Chefs Domenico Cannone (previously Era Ora) and Javier Pascual Álvarez (previously elBulli and Arzak) reign in the kitchen.
- Kenn Husted is the owner of eight restaurants and wine bars in Copenhagen: Paté Paté, Bibendum, Adendum, Falernum, Antidote Vinbar, Vin Bodegaen, Petit Paté and Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas.
- The opening of Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas brings the total number of food & beverage places in Copenhagen Airport to 35: Paté Paté Winebar & Tapas, Caviar House, two Grab and Fly, FoodMarket, three Starbucks, three Segafredo, three Joe & the Juice, three Lagkagehuset, two 7-eleven Deli, two Baresso, Le Sommelier Bar & Bistro, two O'Learys, MASH, Aamanns, Gorm's, Yo! Sushi, four Steff's, Murphy's Irish Pub, Burger King and finally McDonald's, which is located outside the terminals.
