Noma Mexico has just opened its doors. The pop-up restaurant which took one year of planning has come into fruition.
Rene Redzepi, chef of the Copenhagen world renowned restaurant that closed its doors at the end of 2016 to reinvent itself later this year in a new format said on his Instagram feed that “the restaurant is looking amazing”.
The staff have transformed a plot of jungle into an outdoor restaurant. They have built a 32 metre long kitchen and settled 145 staff members, including spouses and children.
Redzepi said: “Thank you Mexico for having us and making us feel so incredibly welcome.”
The restaurant, in Tulum, Mexico will run for seven weeks and is open until May 27 during which time they will be open for dinner from Wednesday to Sunday.
The outdoor open-air restaurant is nestled between the jungle and the Caribbean Sea in Tulum. Exposed to the climate, it will be hot, steaming and unpredictable. It will be wild like the Mexican landscape as we share our interpretation of the tastes from one of the most beautiful countries we’ve come to know.
Noma will reopen in summer in a new location with new facilities and a new concept if things go according to plan. The restaurant will include an urban farm which will give Redzepi and his team ultimate control over all processes ‘from farm to fork’.
