Noma's head chef and owner René Redzepi, will close his Danish restaurant to reopen in Sydney's Barangaroo for a 10-week stint in January 2016!
In what's to be a huge coup for Sydney, René and his team of more than 60, will head to the Anadara building in Barangaroo to serve up an exclusive Australian menu using fresh Aussie ingredients.
It's no surprise given the recent success of Heston Blumenthal's six-month stay at Melbourne's Crown Casino with the 'The Fat Duck'.
Seats are guaranteed to fill up fast with René's Copenhagen restaurant leading the World's 50 Best Restaurants list for four of the past six years.
“I have always been attracted to the incredible diversity you find in Australia’s landscapes and ingredients, because they are like no other place I’ve seen before,” said Redzepi.
“Australia combines strong influences from its indigenous people with new communities from around the world. When you mix it all together, the result is something truly inspiring. It really is the perfect place to come and learn.”

'When we settle down we’re bringing the entire team, from dishwasher to general manager –our work family as well as our spouses and kids— but we’re leaving behind our ingredients in Copenhagen. All we’ll take from our kitchen is an open frame of mind and a passion for learning'
