Michelin-Starred Icelandic Restaurant Pops Into Zeppelin Station

Dill from Reykjavik takes over the food hall


Denver’s love of Reykjavik, Iceland, continues at Zeppelin Station when the newest “Made in Reykjavik” popup dinner partners with Dill, the first Iceland restaurant recognized with a Michelin star.

Chef Gunnar Gíslason uses ingredients found in the wild in Iceland and other Nordic countries.

The four-course dinner features arctic char with salt-baked celeriac, dill, goat cheese, rye bread, and cress; baked cod with apples, potatoes, brown butter, and burned cod head soup; braised lamb shank on crispy dough with smoked mayonnaise and lamb fillet with crispy fat, arctic thyme, and Nordic wasabi; and foamy skyr with rhubarb, tarragon, and hjónabandssæla.

Both nights, Big Trouble, the east meets west cocktail lounge at Zeppelin Station, holds a post-dinner party open to everyone at 11 p.m.

Attendees of the Dill pop-up can shop the 17 Icelandic makers, designers, and artisans of the “Made in Reykjavik” retail shop for an additional 15 percent off purchases with ticket presentation.

Tickets for the four-course dinner go for $85 per person. The dinners on April 20-21 start at 7, 7:30, or 8 p.m. both nights.

Skál! ends its residency at Zeppelin Station on April 10. The seasonal fast-fine food spot run by three friends at Reykjavík’s first food hall, Hlemmur Mathöll, was the first in Zeppelin Station’s Made in Reykjavík series pop-ups with art exhibits and live music.
