We’ve teamed up with the food elite of Denmark to create a whole new restaurant.
These three gentlemen have developed our brand new steakhouse – Restaurant BØF. They’ve been working closely together for the past year exchanging ideas and experiences. They have each made their own mark on the restaurant, and we couldn’t be any prouder of the final result.
If you have been following the “BØF” adventure on social media, you have already met him.
The man behind the grill. The guy from MasterChef.
A little over a year ago, we sat down with Thomas because we thought he could help create the “BØF” we see today. Thomas’ skills in the kitchen have been a huge asset to BØF, where he has played a lead role in curating the menu.
And he’s not just a celebrity chef that we roll out for marketing purposes. You can find Thomas in the restaurant a couple of days a week where he works behind the grill, cooking our delicious meats and sides on open fire.
You all know him – and so did we.
Therefore, we began working with Søren at the beginning of 2018 to develop BØF.
His creative skills in marketing, film direction and art have been a great asset. We love having Søren as part of our team, where he has been in charge of the interior design and aesthetics of the restaurant.
We hope you will agree, that he has done a fantastic job and created a beautiful space.
If anybody knows about beef – it’s Lars Damgaard. He’s been the Managing Director of A Hereford Beefstouw for 31 years. He is also the mastermind behind Restaurant BØF.
During one of his visits to A Hereford Beefstouw in Australia, and at a loose end waiting for his flight to depart back to Denmark, he decided to wander the streets of Sydney looking for his final meal before heading to the airport.
He randomly walked past a new steak restaurant, and decided he would try it. The steaks were grilled on an open fire and served as a share style meal. Lars loved the idea so much and knew straight away that he could use the concept as inspiration, but make it even better.
And so, he did.
Only the best quality is good enough
All the beef on our menu are loin cuts – this is the part of the carcass that only the best steaks come from. Unlike your past steakhouse experiences, don’t expect to get a plate with a big fat steak, because we carve all meat at your table so that it can be shared. Our beef comes from a farm in central Queensland, Australia which is home to a huge herd of 28,000 Angus cattle. We then hand select each and every animal.
After butchering, the beef is hung on hooks in a refrigerated container and shipped from Australia to Denmark. It takes eight weeks, and during this time the beef is dry aged. Dry ageing makes the beef more tender and the flavour develops significantly. When the loin pieces are delivered to the restaurant, they have aged for a minimum of 100 days and are ready to be served. But we let them age a bit longer to make them even better. In our dry ageing cabinet, you can follow the process and the development of the different cuts.
