Noma restaurant to close in 2025 to become a gastronomic laboratory

Chef René Redzepi has announced that Noma, the world's best restaurant, will close as a restaurant in 2025 to become a gastronomic laboratory. It will follow in the footsteps of Ferran Adrià's El Bulli.

Through a post on Instagram, the restaurant Noma has announced that the winter of 2024 will be the last season of Noma as we know it to make way for a Noma 3.0 from 2025. Thus, what has been considered one of the best restaurants of the last decade will go from being a restaurant to a gastronomic laboratory.

As they say on the website, they will continue to travel and look for new ways to share our work and they will also do a Noma pop-up. And when they gather enough new ideas and flavours, they will do a stint in Copenhagen. But they qualify that to stay true to themselves, they have to change. Being a restaurant will no longer define them, and they will spend much of their time exploring new projects and developing many more ideas and products.

The aim is to create a lasting organisation dedicated to innovative work in food, but also to redefine the basis of the restaurant team, a place where they can learn, take risks and grow.

On the website of the current restaurant they answer all the doubts about its new venture, such as whether the whole team will continue or whether it will be possible to dine at Noma again in the future. It will continue to have its entire team. In fact, one of the main reasons for this change is to become a more sustainable workplace for the team and to be able to continue growing together.
