If you happen to be in the Copenhagen area for your next vacation, be sure to head over to Noma, ranked as 2014’s number one restaurant in the world (as well as 2012’s, 2011’s, and 2010’s). El Celler de Can Roca, located in Spain, took the title in 2013, crushing the 5-peat dream. However, Noma has come back with a memorable response to the defeat.
This exceptional restaurant has two Michelin stars, marking it as one of the most fantastic restaurants in the area. If you are looking for a modern spin on interesting Nordic cuisine, this is the place for you.
The setting is incredibly unique — the restaurant is located in an old whaling warehouse in central Copenhagen, Denmark. What makes this restaurant even more desirable is the fact that it only uses ingredients from the surrounding area. This way, you get a truly authentic Nordic dish.
Chef René Redzepi has managed to take the somewhat bizarre Nordic cuisine and has turned it into a masterpiece — the same can be said for the entire staff. Not only is the food unique and incredible, the atmosphere is relaxed and inviting, and the service is simply the best in the world.
This stunning restaurant makes for the perfect dinner with friends or a special someone. The cuisine is light and refreshing, offering flavor combinations you simply cannot find anywhere else in the world.
Noma is definitely for the wealthier individuals — a dinner for two without any wine will cost you $600. However, the food, experience, and atmosphere are all certainly worth the price tag. It is Noma’s goal to use the ingredients and culture of Denmark to “rediscover their history and shape their future.” If you want to discover history through simply amazing cuisine, Noma is the restaurant for you.
