Tickets for the pop-up version of Noma in London this summer sold out in 2.5 hours. About 3,400 tickets were snatched up May 8.
According to restaurant trade publication Harden’s in the UK, about 10,000 people had pre-registered for the chance to take part in “A Taste of Noma at Claridge’s”.
The chef of the best restaurant in the world will be opening a pop-up version of his Copenhagen restaurant Noma in London this summer to mark the Olympic Games.
Best known in the culinary world for pioneering the foraging movement in which chefs use hyper-local ingredients like wild herbs and plants, René Redzepi will be exporting his restaurant Noma to London’s luxury hotel Claridge’s for 10 days.
The pop-up will give Noma fans a better chance at snagging a seat at what’s become one of the most coveted and exclusive dinner reservations in the world.
Redzepi will create a five-course menu that will reflect the signature flavors and dishes from Noma using local, seasonal British ingredients, says Claridge’s.
“A Taste of Noma at Claridge’s” will be open for lunch and dinner in the hotel’s ballroom from July 28 to August 6. A five-course menu is priced at £195.
Recently, Noma was named the world’s best restaurant for the third consecutive year by more than 800 gastronomy experts in London.
