Awarded the title of "best restaurant in the world" several years in a row, noma will have its last service at the end of 2024 and will then reinvent itself as a culinary laboratory.

Copenhagen's three-starred Michelin restaurant in 2021 and four times number one in the world's best restaurants in the 50 Best Restaurants ranking is about to bow out.

An abbreviation of the Danish words "nordisk" (Nordic) and "mad" (food), noma opened on a quay in central Copenhagen in 2003, before closing in 2016 and reopening two years later in a slightly more outlying part of the Danish capital.

While chef René Redzepi offers a single menu in his restaurant priced at €470, the year 2025 will mark a real turning point as he abandons this concept and transforms his property into a culinary laboratory.

This giant laboratory will consist of "a pioneering test kitchen dedicated to the work of food innovation and the development of new flavours". The emphasis will be on creativity, but it will still be possible to eat at noma in Copenhagen or at temporary restaurants in other parts of the world.

It must be said that the chef is never short of ideas to innovate and surprise, just like his decision during the pandemic in the summer of 2020 to transform his restaurant into a wine and burger bar for a month. In addition, noma will open temporarily in Kyoto for two months, between 15 March and 20 May.
