The highly anticipated re-opening of two-Michelin-star restaurant Noma is approaching, and reservations begin today.
Voted Best Restaurant in the World by Restaurant magazine for four years, Noma – which blends the Danish words “nordisk (Nordic) and “mad” (food) – closed it’s doors earlier this year to reinvent itself.
Head chef René Redzepi has been busy researching his new menu in Mexico and Northern Europe, Tasting Table reports.
Noma’s grand opening will take place in February 2018. The restaurant’s new menu will celebrate Scandinavian seafood, which Redzepi claims “is at its absolute best during the cold, winter months.” As per Noma’s former aesthetic, the menu will change several times a year to reflect seasonal ingredients.
The initial menu will not be suitable for vegans or vegetarians as all dishes will contain seafood of some variety. The second menu, which celebrates the Scandinavian summer and utilises the new restaurants accompanying vegetable garden, will be largely vegetarian.
The new restaurant will be located in a different area of Copenhagen and will only seat 40 people. It will be open from Wednesday-Saturday, serving lunches and dinners.
Reservations for the seafood menu, available from February-April 2018, open at 4pm Copenhagen time today, Thursday 16th November.
