Noma, the pinoeering restaurant whch spearheaded the New Nordic movement, has finally re-opened at a new site in Copenhagen after closing for almost a year.
Having spent the intervening time popping up in Mexico and scouring the land and sea of Northern Europe for inspiration for the new menu, René Redzepi and the team finally opened Noma 2.0 on 16 February on a considerably more rugged plot of land, with a total of 11 buildings, including three greenhouses, a fermentation lab and eventually, a 2100 square foot garden, reports the Wall Street Journal.
If you’ve been following the build-up to the relaunch you’ll know that the new Noma menu is divided into three distinct seasons: vegetables in the summer, game in the autumn, and right now, seafood. Thus the very excited first diners at the reluanched restaurant have been sharing their pics online using #nomaocean, as selection of which you can see below.
Jellyfish and pinecones are just a couple of the ingredients that people have been hashtagging the hell out out of already.
First, watch a short video featuring René Redzepi.
