Noma, one of the most influential restaurants in the world led by René Redzepi will reopen its doors in Copenhagen as an outdoor wine bar serving burgers on Thursday May 21.
Chef Redzepi has said ‘These are crazy and uncertain times. Copenhagen is about to open it’s restaurants and so will Noma, however, before we reopen Noma as we know it, we will transform it into a no reservation, drop in only, wine and burger bar.”
“We feel in the first phase of the reopening that we want to be open for everyone. We need to heal. So let’s have a glass of wine and a burger. You are all invited,” the chef said.
The reopening will happen in two steps. In a break from its reservation system where diners need to plan well in advance to get a table, the outdoor wine bar will open in the restaurant’s gardens overlooking the adjacent lake, in Christiania and the restaurant will not take reservations instead offering burgers and wine for everyone.
“You can stop by for a glass of wine or you can stay for more and if you are hungry there will be two burgers on the menu, a Noma cheeseburger and a Noma veggie burger.”
The restaurant will also have an option for take away for both burgers and wine with orders accepted at the door and online.
“Being closed for so long means that it will take weeks for our team to get the kitchen back to the levels we were at before closing. We do not yet have an official re opening date for the restaurant but we will have information on this very soon.”
