Restaurants across the globe are figuring out how to adapt to life after lockdown, and Noma’s Rene Redzepi is no different. The chef has announced that his two-Michelin star Copenhagen restaurant will reopen to the public from 21 May 2020 as an outdoor wine bar and burger joint.
Redzepi made the announcement this weekend via Instagram, revealing that Noma will no longer be accepting reservations and will be ‘drop-in only.’

What crazy and uncertain times. Copenhagen is about to reopen it’s restaurants. And so will Noma. However before we reopen Noma as we know it. We will transform into a no reservation, drop in only, wine and burger bar. We feel in the first phase of the reopening that we want to be open for all. We need to heal, So let’s have a glass and a burger, you’re all invited. See link in bio, and btw the pic is our cheese burger but we will also serve vegetarian options.
He added: ‘We feel in the first phase of the reopening that we want to be open for all. We need to heal, so let’s have a glass [sic] and a burger, you’re all invited.’
Outdoor dining and social distancing protocols will be implemented in line with the Danish government’s advice for the second phase of relaxing its lockdown restrictions. The country was the first in Europe to relax its lockdown restrictions.
