Rene Redzepi’s globally acclaimed Copenhagen restaurant Noma will run its final service in winter 2024.

The fine diner confirmed the news via a video on Instagram, writing that “to continue being Noma, we must change. Noma as you know it is closing as we begin a new chapter … Noma 3.0. Winter 2024 will be the last season.”

But it’s not the end. The restaurant will re-launch as Noma 3.0: a “giant lab, a pioneering test kitchen”, with the team developing new flavours and focusing on food innovation, allowing the Noma brigade to “share the fruits of our efforts more widely than ever before. Much of our time will be spend on exploring new projects and developing many more ideas and products.”

Noma was most recently named the number one restaurant in the world in 2021 by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants after it reopened in a new location in 2018 as Noma 2.0.

While 2024 will see the last official service held at Noma and the brand will move away from a traditional restaurant model, “serving guests will still be a part of who we are”, so patrons can expect pop-ups in Copenhagen and other locations, too.

The restaurant will soon commence a residency at Ace Hotel Kyoto for 10 weeks from 15 March, with tickets selling out almost immediately last year.
