Spin-off restaurant from Copenhagen’s famous Noma has opened a permanent location

Travellers dreaming of a meal at Copenhagen’s famous restaurant Noma but lacking the necessary funds can now get amazing cuisine without the high price tag. A spin-off restaurant from the famous Michelin-starred Nordic restaurant has opened a permanent location with a more casual vibe.

108 started as a pop-up at Noma while the restaurant’s team was running its own pop-up in Australia. Now, it has come back with a permanent space. The restaurant is co-owned by Noma’s Rene Redzepi and former Noma chef Kristian Baumann.  Like Noma, it will focus on local ingredients and regionally-inspired dishes. While tables at Noma are booked up months in advance, 108 is a much more casual setting, allowing customers to pop in and sample some exceptional cuisine.

108 offers an a la carte menu, which allows visitors to “make the evening your own”. The spot also serves fresh brewed coffee and pastries in the morning and has a selection of wines from midday on. The restaurant is open from 7 am to 8 pm Monday and Tuesday, 7 am to 12 am on Wednesday through Friday and 9 am to 12 am on Saturday and Sunday.

It’s located around the corner from Noma, although the famous restaurant will be relocating at the end of the year to a former navy building on the border of Christiania, where it will grow some of its own produce on an urban farm.
