Noma Under the Bridge

A cobblestone road led us to Copenhagen’s Knippelsbro bridge. Plastic tarps were fastened to shield us from the cold air. It was November in Copenhagen, after all.

We were greeted Noma-style, with one big happy cheer at the entrance. Inside, 60 diners were seated elbow to elbow at one long wooden table for a pop-up dinner titled, Noma Under the Bridge.

Noma was closed during their relocation to their new building, so this pop-up dinner series was born. The last time I saw some of the Noma staff was six months earlier in Tulum, Mexico, where they held another Noma popup dinner series. It was a lot colder now, and since there was no running electricity, it was also a lot darker.

The courses were created by Noma staff, each had their own personalities, but remained Noma-esque. And yes, ants were served at the very end of the meal. The evening was boisterous, casual, and cheerful and I loved every minute of it. The pop-up was supposed to end in September, but was extended until November 12, 2017.
