The joy of food runs in our veins

For several centuries the Price family has consisted of creative spirits;
ballet dancers, theater artists and in our case composers and screenwriters. All with a big appetite for the pleasures of life.

We usually say that we come from a home with a piano and a stove, where food was the center of attention whether it was classic Danish meatballs or finer French cooking. 

We have our father John Price to thank for that, as he generously shared his knowledge and passion at the dinner table, in book form and on television. His enthusiasm for the meal and the good taste has followed us throughout our lives, and this is what we want to share in our restaurants.

Our journey as restaurateurs began in Rosenborggade, and since then we have expanded with restaurants in most of the country. The keywords for the restaurants are homeliness, coziness and personality. Above all, we want to spread the joy of food that we ourselves grew up with, and therefore serve everything we love in surroundings that reflect our family's creative spirit.

Brdr. Price Rosenborggade


When the decision to open the first restaurant was made, the hunt for the right room began. The brothers knew that the restaurant had to be a very unique and personal space. The experience should mimic the familiar and personal atmosphere and narrative that they feel are so important to their history. They searched for a long time with no luck, but suddenly there was an opportunity in the "KFUM castle" right at Nørreport Station.

The building originally housed the KFUMS soldiers' mission and also served as a hotel and soldiers' home for the Lifeguard's barracks on the other side of Gothersgade. Later, the building housed the University of Copenhagen's Department of Political Science. The building is unique in all its bombastic late romanticism with redstone, large granite sections, bay windows and the terrace facing Rosenborggade with a view of the Reformed Church and the "Pjaltenborg" building that housed a lodging house for the poor and homeless.

High ceilings and large windows

In the restaurant, there are high ceilings and large windows everywhere - but most beautiful in The Great Hall, which was previously used as a gym for the soldiers. The old hooks for the ropes from the gym still hang from the ceiling. A nice detail that testifies to the building's previous use.

When we saw the hall with 8 meters to the ceiling, there was no way around it. And then we searched attics and basements, cupboards and drawers to find as many paintings, theater sketches and personal effects as we could. Including a home-shot hunting trophy of an African kudu, which gazes at guests as they descend the stairs to the dining room. We are very happy with the result!

The ambition was to give guest the experience of dining in a private home, regardless of the size of the dining room. For us, it's almost like stepping into our childhood home when we look around at the many well-known paintings, drawings and memories on the walls. But it is also unpretentious and done with a lot of humor. Not all tables and chairs are the same, with full consideration. The old furniture contributes to a more personal and homely feeling.
