Fru Nimb is named after Louise Nimb, who was one of the great Copenhagen restaurateurs of the 1800s. In Tivoli Gardens, she and her husband, Vilhelm, managed the Divan 2 establishment. She was a masterly chef and published a very popular cookbook, Fru Nimbs Kogebog. Above all, she was an excellent hostess who knew how to make everyone feel welcome, gentry and commoners alike. Everything Louise Nimb had learnt about the restaurant business she passed on to her daughters, Henriette and Serina, who were handed responsibility for Restaurant Nimb in 1909 when the establishment first opened.
The restaurant “Fru Nimb” opened in spring 2015.
