Noma set to close in 2016, will stay in Copenhagen


New home will be a derelict Copenhagen building, to be suitably refurbished with a rooftop garden & farmable floating raft as part of an urban farm.

Its sometimes considered as the restaurant that ‘made’ the city. Noma, often voted the world’s best restaurant, will serve its last meal in its current Copenhagen home on New Year’s eve next year.

Chef René Redzepi has chosen a location in the Copenhagen’s Christiania neighborhood as the future home of Noma. The building, currently decorated with graffiti and skate ramps, will be renovated to include a rooftop greenhouse and a farmable floating raft.

Redzepi, who is known for highly seasonal menus and foraged foods, plans to tie his menus even more closely to the seasons in the new iteration. He says the last service at the current Noma will take place on New Year’s Eve, 2016, with the new location opening sometime in 2017.

“It makes sense to have your own farm, as a restaurant of this caliber,” Redzepi said, though he is certainly aware of all the challenges that come with farming. “I’m not afraid. But it does make me nervous.”
