The restaurant at Hotel d\'Angleterre has undergone a complete transformation – the décor is new, the chefs are new and the culinary style is new!

The cuisine at Restaurant Hotel D\'Angleterre will reflect the season since the highly regarded, new chef believes that fresh market produce is the basis of any savory dish. The international cuisine has a French point of origin - a cuisine spiced with imagination, creativity, and good common sense. For lunch, the restaurant serves light dishes and a 3-course lunch menu. Evenings offers gastronomic experiences with à la carte, classic dishes and a tasting menu. The restaurant will also feature guest chef days and other gastronomic events.

EULAR Congress to Copenhagen

The executive committee of EULAR, European League Against Rheumatism, has just announced that their 2009 congress is going to be held in Copenhagen. The congress attracts more than 10,000 delegates from most of the world representing health professionals, patient organizations and scientific societies in the field of rheumatology.
Executive director of EULAR Fred Wyss says that Copenhagen was chosen as destination for the 2009 congress first of all because the city has all the facilities required to handle an event of this scale, including a large congress center, excellent infrastructure with only 12 minutes transport time from congress venue to city center, good hotels in the right category and nice venues for social events: \'In addition, Copenhagen is a very attractive city beautifully situated by water - and inhabited by friendly people, which also counts,\' Fred Wyss concludes
