About the job

Aamanns 1921, located on Niels Hemmingsens Gade in the Inner city of Copenhagen, opened in August 2017. Here the taste is paramount, and the service is professional and welcoming. 

For lunch, we serve smørrebrød originated from tradition, but in a modern interpretation, cooked with new ideas and intense flavor compositions focusing on good taste and sustainable ingredients. In the evening, we serve 10-course menus and a la carte, inspired by classic dishes. We have room for 70 guests in the restaurant and 40 guests in our private dining. 

We are looking for great chefs to join our nice team.

What makes the nice environment at 1921 for me – it's mostly the communication from the owners, the head chef, me and my colleague as a sous-chef and the rest of the guys. When you have a problem, a doubt or any requirements - you feel like someone is taking care of it. And in my experience, this is not very usual in this industry

More about Aamanns

Aamanns was founded by chef Adam Aamann, who in 2006 opened our first smørrebrøds restaurant and Take Away in Østerbro in Copenhagen. Back then and today, the starting point is quality smørrebrød based on the classic Danish lunch kitchen but in a new interpretation. Today, Aamanns has several different places, all working with the same gastronomic set of values and transforming the high quality that we’re known for from our smørrebrød into other dishes.  

The effort to revitalize and reinvent the smørrebrød has thrown much recognition our way. Both from the many happy regular guests, but also from reviewers, Danish as well as international. For example, the restaurants Aamanns Etablissement and Aamanns 1921 have been recommended in guide Michelin for many years. In 2019, we won the “smørrebrød of the year” award from Danish Food Critics.  

Today Aamanns consists of the following outlets: 

  • Aamanns Deli &Takeaway (since 2006) 
  • Aamanns Etablissement, lunch restaurant (since 2009) 
  • Aamanns Frokostordning (since 2015) 
  • Aamanns Køkken & Event, venue and canteen on Refshaleøen (since 2015) 
  • Aamanns 1921, restaurant (since 2017) 
  • Aamanns Replik at Skuespilhuset (2021) 
  • Aamanns Botanical Senses (soap series and lotion) 
  • Aamanns Kryddersnaps (snaps series in collaboration with Braunstein) 
  • Aamanns cookbooks

Ecology, animal welfare, and sustainability

Sustainability, animal welfare, and ecology have always been strong values for us, and all our businesses are based on these basic elements. In 2019, three of our departments received the Organic Food Label in silver, which means 60-90% ecology in the kitchens, and we’re constantly working with sustainability in several areas, including food waste, waste sorting, packaging, etc. Aamanns currently participates in “Bæredygtig Bundlinje” in collaboration with the City of Copenhagen, DI, and Gate21. 

We prepare everything on the menu of ingredients provided by our skilled suppliers and smaller local organic farms. We have worked with our suppliers for many years and appreciate the dialogue, where in addition to the orders, we’re also involved in the planning of the production of next season’s ingredients.
