Expert review of MASH

A classic American steakhouse in central Copenhagen.

It's all about the steaks at MASH. The clue's in the name - it stands for Modern American Steak House, which is exactly what it is.

Food and drink: 

Yes, you'll find lobster and grilled fish and chicken on the menu and they're fine, but really they are mere garnish to the main event - great big juicy steaks, right up to a multi-person, 1.3kg Porterhouse.

The menu is short and simple. Choose your steak, decide on sauce and garnish and that's it. The burger, which comes with lovely chili fries, here is pricey but worth considering too. Given that MASH's sister restaurant is Le Sommelier, you won't be surprised to learn there are some seriously good red wines to pair all this dead cow with.

Recommended dishes: 

Go for the Danish dry aged steaks - hung to melting perfection for 90 days.

Ambience: 

I love the red chairs and modern interior, a classy Danish take on the US diner.

Service: 

It was all very polished and slick when I ate here.

Location: 

Just around the corner from Nyhavn, MASH is very central without being so close, happily, that it attracts the tourist throngs.

Price advice: 

It's not cheap here. Expect to pay 250 krone for a steak and around 500 krone for a modest meal with a glass of wine. The burger is a slightly more affordable 165 krone.

Other useful branches: 

Sister restaurant Le Sommelier is a good option if you want polished bistro food and show stopping wines.
