Denmark’s best-known chef René Redzepi told the New York Times on Monday that he plans to introduce an ambitious new version of Noma in an industrial area near Christiania.
Redzepi’s new vision is to convert the unused land into an urban farm with Noma at its centre. The facility will include a partially floating farm and a greenhouse roof that will be tended to by a full-time farming staff.
Redzepi, 37, told the Times that despite his restaurant winning the Best Restaurant in the World title four times, he thinks its time to shut it down and start anew.
“We’re just finding our way. Even though it has been successful, even though it has had media attention and all that,” he said.
