Noma, the Michelin two-star NordicÂ restaurant that’s often cited as the best restaurant in the world, has recently announced that it will be temporarily closing down its Denmark homeÂ for a 10-week residencyÂ in Sydney next year. Beginning inÂ January 2016, the restaurant will hold court in theÂ Anadara building overlooking Sydney Harbour and serve lunch and dinnerÂ five days a week.
The move follows the restaurantâ€™s successful pop-up inÂ Tokyo earlier this year, where all 3,456 reservations sold out on the same day they went on sale, and up to 60,000Â people were registered on the waiting list.
â€śThe immersion into Japanese culture challenged us to understand a new set of ingredients, develop new mindsets, and explore new possibilities,â€ť Chef RenĂ© Redzepi wrote on Nomaâ€™s website. â€śWe want to travel like this one final time â€¦ and lately Iâ€™ve been dreaming of Australia.â€ť
Similar to its Tokyo residency, Noma will be bringing its entire teamâ€”from dishwashers to managerâ€”when it sets up its operations down under, leaving behind only the ingredients it uses in Copenhagen in lieu of local produceÂ from itsÂ new temporary base.
The restaurant has yet to announce the dates for reservations.
