While the world starts to step out after a long wait, as the Coronavirus lockdown restrictions ease, restaurants and other establishments are reopening to welcome guests again. Among them is one of the world’s best restaurant, Noma that will be reopening as a wine bar. By Amitha Ameen

“We will open an outdoor wine bar in our beautiful gardens at Noma, overlooking the lake we share with our neighbours in Christiania. Come as you are, there are no reservations, we are open for everyone,” read a statement on the restaurant’s website.

Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark founded by René Redzepi had been ranked as the Best Restaurant in the World for four years in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014. As of 2019, the restaurant stands at rank two but that hasn’t deterred its fame and customers.

Getting a table at one of the best restaurants in the world is not as simple too. The restaurant usually opens reservations thrice a year, within which time you will need to secure your table by paying upfront as is the case with many fine-dining restaurants.

But thanks to the Coronavirus, you can now enjoy a dining experience at this world-renowned restaurant, albeit with a different set-up, without having to wait for years and months to secure a table.

As for when the restaurant will be back in a full-fledged manner, “In order to open Noma, the restaurant as we know it, we will need some extra time to get the machine up and running again. Being closed for so long means that it will take weeks for our team to get the kitchen back to the levels we were at before closing. We do not yet have an official opening date for the restaurant to share, but we will have more information on this very soon.”

According to the website, the wine bar will be open from Thursday to Sunday between 01:00 pm to 09:00 pm. Guests can also opt for takeaway of wine and food.
