The chef of the best restaurant in the world will be opening a pop-up version of his Copenhagen restaurant Noma in London this summer to mark the Olympic Games.
Best known in the culinary world for pioneering the foraging movement in which chefs use hyper-local ingredients like wild herbs and plants, René Redzepi will be exporting his restaurant Noma to London’s luxury hotel Claridge’s for 10 days.
The pop-up will give Noma fans a better chance at snagging a seat at what’s become one of the most coveted and exclusive dinner reservations in the world.
Noma has topped the World’s 20 Best Restaurants list for two years running and Redzepi was also named one of Time magazine 100 Most Influential People in the World this month.
Redzepi will create a five-course menu that will reflect the signature flavors and dishes from Noma using local, seasonal British ingredients, says Claridge’s.
“A Taste of Noma at Claridge’s” will be open for lunch and dinner in the hotel’s ballroom from July 28 to August 6. A five-course menu is priced at 240Euro (£195).
Noma is best known for its fanatical approach to foraging but there is much more to this ground-breaking restaurant than the mere picking of Mother Nature’s pocket.
