René Redzepi's Noma 2.0 Will Take Bookings From Next Week

It's taken a little longer than expected, but René Redzepi's world-renowned Noma finally has a return date and is about to start taking bookings.

After shutting the doors of its two-Michelin star Copenhagen restaurant early this year, the acclaimed chef was due to reopen it next month in new digs, until construction hit a wall — literally, an ancient stone wall found buried below the building site.

Now with things back on track — and fresh from auctioning off their old furniture and fixtures — lunch and dinner reservations to Noma 2.0 will open from 4pm November 16. That's at 2am next Friday, November 17 if you're on Australian east coast daylight saving time, with bookings taken for visits between February 15 and April 29 next year.

This will mark the first of the 40-seater's three annual menus, as the restaurant moves to strengthen its focus on seasonality. These first, cooler winter months will feature a celebration of Scandinavian seafood across each meticulous dish, followed by a vegetable season starring produce from the on-site urban garden, and a game and forest season which runs from early fall through to January 2019.

Of course, it doesn't come cheap — the degustation menu clocks in at DKK 2,250 per head (currently about AUD $460) and you'll need to prepay when you book. Noma's highlighted this 12 percent price hike as a way of giving their staff a better quality of life. That said, the restaurant's also reserving 10 percent of its seats each night for students with a valid student ID, who can jump on a waiting list to enjoy the menu for just DKK 1,000 (AUD $205).

Noma's booking link is set to go live at 2am next Friday, November 17 AEDT. In the meantime, check out the reservation guidelines here.
