‘World’s Best Restaurant’ Noma Is Heading to NYC — Here’s How to Snag a Reservation
In April, Noma, the Copenhagen-based restaurant that currently sits atop the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, announced its plans to open up shop in New York City. However, fans of the restaurant will have to work extra hard to snag reservations, as it will only be in town from May 16-20. The experience will be open exclusively to American Express cardholders enrolled in its Global Dining Access program.
For the event, owner and chef René Redzepi is taking over the venue at 26 Bridge Street, a former metal factory in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood. However, the space will be unrecognizable to locals. According to The Points Guy, the spot will be made over to resemble Noma’s home location in Copenhagen and will include plenty of greenery and minimal Scandinavian style to give it a little more added flair.

Northern Railway is going to introduce the restaurant in the circulating area of New Delhi Railway Station on the Ajmeri Gate side.

There would also be a takeaway counter for people to buy food, snacks and beverages.
