One of the big stories in the food world this week is Rene Redzepi’s decision to close Noma, one of the world’s top-rated restaurants, next year. Now it’s being revealed that he intends to reopen Noma next year in a new Copenhagen location, to evolve the restaurant into a true Nordic culinary laboratory. The staff will grow their own food, practice seasonal cooking in earnest, and forage a little closer to home. The new spot will even be a vegetarian restaurant for one season per year. Pretty crazy. Check out the short film on the past and future of this landmark establishment, which will close after 12 years on New Year’s Eve 2016. Temporarily, it turns out.
