Say Hello to Strangers Over a Meal at Copenhagen's Airport

September 4, 2014 at 10:52 AM | by | ()

Be sure to bring your appetite if you’re heading to or through Copenhagen anytime soon, as the airport is bringing in some fine concourse cuisine.

As part of the Copenhagen Cooking Food Festival the airport has opened up a pop-up restaurant called Hallo Hello. Of course the food here is the focus, but the folks behind the idea—Lasse Askov and Bo Lindegaard—have real life social networks on the mind as well.

They’re encouraging diners to share three course meals with strangers, as they’re trying their best to offer up a little bit of relationship and friendship as a side dish.

Officials recognize that travelers are often doing the solo thing, so the way things are setup allow for better sharing and interaction. Just in case things don’t go well they offer up the final course in a to-go bag. Seriously though the thought here is to just get people talking and sharing, so we wish them the best—it’s a nice thought.
