Noma 2.0 which had to open in December will have its opening delayed due to an archaeological find, chef René Redzepi announced in a Facebook post.
He said that to cut a long story short, the builders found an old wall in the ground during the works and archaeologists had to be called in. After a month long inspection, the works could continue following the granting of an approval but this means that the opening will be delayed to 2018.
Redzepi said that because of this delay, the team at Noma will be extending their pop-up Under the Bridge by another 6 weeks until November 12.
Joining the Noma team for the extended run to help develop a new menu for October and November, will be two of Noma’s friends Torsten Vildgaard, most recently head chef of Studio, and bread will be made by Richard Hart, the former head baker of Tartine Bakery in San Francisco. Richard Hart will be opening a bakery in Copenhagen next year. “We are so excited to be working with both of them,” Redzepi said.

The pop-up which had to be open till September will therefore remain open till November.
