Three young owners

The restaurant is run and owned by three young men, Kalle, Asbjørn and Frederik.

Together they make an unstoppable team, each of them playing to their strengths. Even though they only opened in October 2019, the young lads have already become known for owning one of the best restaurants in Aarhus. They recently won the award “Smag Prisen” 2020 and was declared Aarhus’ best new restaurant.

Minimalistic and modern interior

Not only is the food minimalistic in its creation, but so is the interior inside the restaurant. At Syv Ni 13, less is more in every sense.

The restaurant also has big windows that give guests a panorama look onto the busy life of Frederiksgade.


The story behind 7-9-13

The restaurant is named after an old Nordic superstition where you have to say seven-nine-thirteen in an effort to avoid jinxing yourself after stating good news, for example. The superstition is similar to the “knock-on-wood” superstition, where you knock on wood to avoid tempting fate after making a statement or a favourable prediction.
