Game, seafood, or vegetarian season? was the question you'd ask yourself when making travel plans to eat at Noma, Copenhagen. Today, however, diners can only partake of what chef-proprietor René Redzepi has jokingly dubbed 'cheese burger season' on Instagram.
Peppered with awards and accolades, including 2 Michelin stars and the number 1 spot among The World’s Best Restaurant (2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014), Noma has changed the way the world eats with its commitment to seasonality, trials and tribulations in its fermentation lab, and Chef Redzepi's willingness to experiment with just about anything (including duck brains and bills!).
On May 16, 2020, Noma astonished the world by announcing that they would temporarily halt their multi-course menus to flip burgers. But what some might see as a step backward is, in fact, a big-hearted move to feed more mouths, especially with Noma's no reservations system now in place.
