René Redzepi Is Bringing The Noma Experience To NYC For A Limited Time

Since its first iteration opened in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2003 (via Britannica), the award-winning fine dining restaurant Noma has been a cultural tour de force. Known for its daring New Nordic cuisine that pays special attention to what its owner and chef René Redzepi terms "time and place" — the restaurant is epitomized by the use of hyper-local ingredients that are pickled, preserved, and presented experimentally, according to Workman Publishing. Noma has also racked up three Michelin stars and the top pick of The World's Best 50 Restaurants.

According to Brittanica, for devoted eaters who haven't had the chance to visit Copenhagen, Noma has incarnated in cities including Tokyo, Japan; Sydney, Australia; and Tulum, Mexico. Typically, these limited-time-only local editions open for about two months and tend to sell out in just a few hours, per Eater. This time around, a New York City Noma will take reservations for five nights only — so get your credit card ready if you want to go.

Reservations open soon to select American Express cardholders

If you've never gotten a chance to dine at the award-winning New Nordic restaurant Noma and you live in or near New York City, grab your wallet because this could be your chance. As shared in a press release on the American Express website, the restaurant will open in Brooklyn, New York's DUMBO neighborhood for dinner from May 16 through May 20. The $700 tickets for a multicourse dinner with wine pairings, will be available through the Resy site for American Express Platinum credit cardholders only.

True to his hyper-local cooking style, chef René Redzepi will source ingredients from nearby purveyors like Manhattan's famed Union Square Greenmarket. Travel & Leisure shares diners can expect to sample Noma hits such as æbleskiver, as well as dishes that were featured at the Tokyo and Sydney Noma pop-ups. Thrillist reports that reservations will be capped at 50 diners per night, or 250 eaters total.

"Noma is looking forward to traveling to New York to share our cooking and craft with some of the most passionate diners in the world," Redzepi shared in the press release. "It is incredibly rare that we take Noma's kitchen on the road for a collaboration."
