A greenhouse on the roof, cracked asphalt peeled away to make room for new land, a platform on a lake on which to grow vegetables. World-famous restaurant Noma re-emerges in Copenhagen in the summer of 2017 in new surroundings!
The Head Chef of Danish restaurant Noma, René Redzepi, closed down the first location in February 2017, the world famous Restaurant Noma in Copenhagen will re-open in the summer of 2017 in new facilities, in a new location and with a new concept. The entire Noma-staff is currently in Mexico to open a new, temporarily, outdoor restaurant in the resort town of Tulum. Here they’re trying their skills on interpreting the tacos á la Noma, for seven weeks and then return to Copenhagen in June. If things proceed as planned, they will open a new, ultra-modern and improved version of the restaurant, maintaining the same world-known name, Noma.
Redzepi wishes to create a restaurant with an ‘urban farm’, where he can be in ultimate control over all processes ‘from farm to fork’. “Naturally, we could just have continued in the same way as now. But I sincerely believe, that we wouldn’t develop enough“, Rene Redzepi explains and continues. “With a restaurant of our calibre and concept, it makes sense to have our own farm too“.
And as always, the innovative chef has wild plans; A greenhouse on the roof, cracked asphalt to be peeled away to make room for new land, and a platform on a lake on which to grow vegetables on a floating field.
