NEWS DENMARK: The iconic address that for ten years housed Noma will now be home to a brand new restaurant, spearheaded by René Redzepi and Thorsten Schmidt: Barr.
On July 5th, Barr will open, drawing inspiration from the entire North Sea – including the Nordics, but not only: the British Isles and Benelux will also influence the menu. Seating 60, Barr will be a different experience than Noma once was, while presumably carrying on the tradition of culinary joy and exploration that Mr. Redzepi himself is known for.
"We want to carry on the spirit of experimentation and knowledge, serving our versions of traditional dishes, along with a great selection of beers and aquavit from this extraordinary area", says Torsten Schmidt to The Caterer.
Mr. Redzepi himself, meanwhile, is also keeping busy: while preparing for Noma's new incarnation on Refshaleøen, the plans of which have been underway for several years, he's also played host in the jungle to the third of Noma's world-wide pop-ups, and this one perhaps the most talked-about yet: in Tulum in Mexico, he's been serving experimental dishes during the spring, showcasing the best the Yucatán peninsula has to offer to great acclaim.
