If dining at the world’s top restaurant is on your bucket list, you better book those plane tickets stat. Noma in Copenhagen is closing.
Known for fantastical dishes (alongside daring ones like reindeer heart tartare and deep-fried duck brain served in its own skull), Noma is a New Nordic restaurant with a focus on wild, local and seasonal ingredients that uses age-old practices such as fermentation and foraging.
Come 2024, Noma as we currently know it will close to make way for Noma 3.0 – a “pioneering test kitchen” to help expand Noma’s work in food innovation. In short, the restaurant is transforming into a giant lab.
Alongside the lab work, though, there is promise of another pop-up, as well as a season in Copenhagen once the team have “gathered enough new ideas and flavours”. However, no dates on these yet. Sorry everyone.
