Nordic cuisine was once virtually unknown among food critics and gastronomes, so Noma caused something of a stir when it began topping best restaurant lists two years ago.
Its aim is to showcase the very best of Nordic food, so guests can expect local delicacies like Icelandic skyr curd and Greenland musk ox.
Everything about the restaurant is Danish, from the location in an old warehouse that once stored whale blubber to the prevalence of locally produced salts, pickles and vegetables—there are no sun-dried tomatoes or foie gras here. You’ll find Noma on the Greenlandic Trading Square, the center of Danish trade across Scandinavia for more than 200 years.
