As René Redzepi gets ready to serve the final meal at the acclaimed Copenhagen restaurant, Noma, he isn’t skipping a beat, opening 108, his first stab at a more casual, approachable restaurant just down the road from the original. The space, a cafe serving coffee and pastries during the day, called The Corner, opens today. And at night, the space becomes a full-service restaurant, about which the Michelin-starred chef says:
Throughout the year, we pick berries, flowers, mushrooms and nuts preserving the best of each season. We ferment everything from pumpkin seeds to squid guts, brewing new flavors to heighten our dishes. We collaborate with our farmers to better understand our ingredients and our region, in an effort to keep exploring the Copenhagen kitchen. The menu is à la carte for you to make the evening your own.
For the opening, the menu includes: summer fennel with fresh goat cheese, caramelized milk skin with grilled pork belly and a sourdough “cone” filled with toasted barley ice cream and hazelnuts. There’s also a family style section called livretter, meaning “your favorite dish,” which includes things like a roasted lamb shoulder with summer cabbage, elderflowers and smoked butter sauce with elderberry capers.
We are delighted to announce that on July 27th, 108 will open its doors. Bookings are now open at 108.dk and we accept reservations 30 days in advance. We can’t wait to welcome you into our home and show you what we’ve been up to over the last months� Vi er glade for at meddele at vi den 27. juli åbner dørene til 108. Bookinger kan nu laves på 108.dk og vi accepterer reservationer 30 dage frem. Vi kan ikke vente med at byde jer velkommen i vores nye hjem og vise jer, hvad vi har været arbejdet på de seneste måneder� #108cph #finallyopen
Redzepi has one more thing on tap this week, a second Noma documentary called Ants on a Shrimp, which comes out on Friday. Meanwhile, the last meals are being served at Noma before the location gets turned into an urban farm.
