ICYMI, Noma Copenhagen is opening a temporary restaurant in Sydney early next year *squeals with excitement*. René Redzepi and the entire creative team from Noma Copenhagen will be closing the doors in Copenhagen and throwing open the Sydney doors from 26th January until 2nd April much to the excitement of foodies Australia-wide.
The $485 menu will showcase the best of Australian produce as interpreted by René Redzepi who says, “The menu development is looking really good. Between our sommeliers and kitchen staff we’ve already been on six research trips to Australia over the past ten months. We’ve gone to as many regions as we can, to get a good perspective on the amazing produce in Australia. In December, we’ll move the entire creative team to Sydney so they can spend time putting together a menu that best showcases what we’ve found on our trips.”
Sure, it ain’t cheap, but it’s a whole lot cheaper than the plane fare to Copenhagen. Plus it’s one of those once-in-a-lifetime things, which makes the $$$ somewhat easier to part with.
