Denmark to Sydney – Noma is Coming!

Restaurants, Sydney / 29 July 2015

Ever felt like Australia’s fine-dining scene needed a little extra oomph? Well, your solution is on its way, with one of the world’s best restaurants, Noma, planning to relocate to Sydney for just ten short weeks.
Head chef René Redzepi and his team will temporarily close their Denmark restaurant from January 2016, until their Australian jaunt is complete. Noma’s new waterfront home at Barangaroo on Sydney Harbour satisfies Redzepi’s curiosity for the Australian culture. “I have always been attracted to the incredible diversity you find in Australia’s landscapes and ingredients, because they are like no other place I’ve seen before”, said Redzepi.

The Noma team will find the best of Australia’s produce to design an original menu, focusing on producers who have a respectful and passionate engagement with the sea and the land.
“Australia combines strong influences from its Indigenous people with new communities from around the world. When you mix it all together, the result is something truly inspiring. It really is the perfect place to come and learn”, added Redzepi.
As a vital part of Noma’s research in the lead up to the restaurant opening, René and his team have already embarked on several Australia-wide visits to meet with producers, local communities, farmers and chefs, and explore the diverse landscape and multi-faceted culture of the country.
Noma Australia will launch in January 2016 and will open for lunch and dinner five days a week.
Bookings for the restaurant will open later this year.  Further details about registering interest and bookings can be found at
