Noma welcomes 108

While Rene Redzepi is busy with the NOMA pop-up down under, a new restaurant, called 108, will be opening in former site of the top restaurant.

Just when you thought all had gone quiet on the Noma front, after Redzepi announced plans of taking the dining concept oversees for an Australian pop-up, or closing the eponymous restaurant in favour of an urban farm, his latest plans reveal that the groundbreaking chef will now be teaming up with local chef Kristian Bauman, to create 108.

The new restaurant is actually named after it’s more permanent residence on Strandgade 108, but until the venue is ready for it’s big opening in spring 2016, they will be setting up camp in the vacant Noma site.

Although Chef Redzepi won’t actually be running the new venture, he will be working closely with co-owner, Kristian Bauman, former chef at Noma and Relæ.

With an aim to offer a dining experience that can appeal to a wider audience within the Danish capital, the food will follow in true Nordic style with inspiration being found from the local area and restaurant scene.

The food philosophy of 108 will stay close to Rene’s heart with a focus on creating an urban restaurant, which pays close attention to independent farmers, natural preserving methods of foraged local products, and sampling all that nature has to offer.

FOUR can reveal that menu highlights will include dishes such as; cured squid with bacon broth and salted plums, grilled pork belly with green gooseberries and fresh pine, linseed tart with braised sunflower seeds in a truffle cream, fresh cauliflower and smoked scallops, and sweet treats including brown cheese hazelnut cake with pickled flowers, and preserved rose hips with caramel and vinegar.

With the new restaurant set to open in May 2016, the temporary pop up in Noma, from January 20th to April 16th, will be a good chance to see the project in motion.The pop-up will be open for dinner only, Wednesday to Saturday, and feature an a la carte menu, with bookings being taken from 20th January 2016 until 20th February 2016.
