(CNN) – While restrictions on coronavirus are easing worldwide, one of the best restaurants in the world, Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark, announced Friday that it will reopen next week with a new concept: an outdoor wine bar with two burgers – one meat, one vegetarian – on the menu.
The restaurant closed in mid-March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As Denmark begins to reopen two months later, the lucky Danes have the opportunity to make a new, albeit limited, experience of Noma.
Noma is no stranger to change: the founder René Redzepi closed the first version of the restaurant 14 years after the opening to start over with Noma 2.0, which was opened in 2018. In the meantime, Redzepi has made pop-ups in Japan, Mexico , even one under a bridge in Copenhagen.
The agility of this restaurant and its team is one of its most unique attributes, as well as bringing Nordic cuisine to the attention of gastronomes around the world.
After opening the wine shop, Redzepi plans to reopen the new and original Noma in due course.
“Being closed for so long means that it will take weeks for our team to return the kitchen to previous levels before closing. We don’t have an official opening date yet to share with the restaurant, but we will have more information on this very soon. ”
