René Redzepi announces Noma Australia to open at Barangaroo Sydney

Barangaroo, Sydney to host the Noma residency.


René Redzepi is the chef and founder of one of the most influential restaurants in the world, Noma.

Located in Copenhagen, Denmark, Noma has been awarded two Michelin stars and has been recognised as the S. Pellegrino World’s Best Restaurant four times in the past six years.

Redzepi, who first travelled to Australia in 2008, will be visiting the country again with the news that Australia will host the latest international pop-up residency for the acclaimed restaurant.

Opening at Barangaroo, Sydney at the end of January 2016 for ten weeks, the highly anticipated Noma Australia will operate five days a week for lunch and dinner, with an original menu featuring all Australian produce. 

“Since my first visit there many years ago, Australia has always drawn me in” shared Redzepi.

“The vibrant cities and wonderful people have kept me wanting to come back, and I have always been attracted to the incredible diversity you find in Australia’s landscapes and ingredients…because in truth, they are like no other place on earth. Australia’s culture 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..”

Bush tucker, fruit and berries

“For many years now I’ve wanted to spend more time in Australia, to explore, to taste, and to better understand this country: from the tropical fruit in the north to the pristine fish and shellfish of the very south, and all of the beautiful wonders in-between. I look forward to bringing the team to Sydney next year for this new challenge, one that will provide us all with the opportunity to broaden our horizons, to expand our minds and our tastes, and to make new friends (and catch up with old ones) as we delve into this magnificent landscape.”

“I selected Sydney as the location for the restaurant as it is one of the world’s most iconic cities, and is also a gateway to the rest of Australia.”

“The obvious connection to Noma is the water, with both Barangaroo, Sydney and Noma (Copenhagen) being located on harbours. Despite being on the other side of the world, standing by the quay reminds me a lot of home. There is a lot of the same energy. We were also lucky enough to find a partner and new friends in Lend Lease who offered us a temporary home, and the opportunity to move in and borrow such an exciting space.”

“Of course there's so much we're looking forward to doing in Australia during our time here including learning about and cooking with new ingredients, exploring a great city and culture with friends and family... and finally getting a summer that lasts longer than five days.”

Singapore Airlines are the official airline partner for the event, and will be flying René, his team and their families to Australia.
