A meal at the Australian pop-up branch of Norma will see Australian foodies fork out around AU$485 per person. The Mecca of fine dining, the two Michelin star restaurant run by chef René Redzepi in Copenhagen has topped the prestigious World’s Best Restaurant list in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014.
Often thought of as the most influential chef in the world, Redzepi was listed in TIME magazine’s 2012 list of the 100 most influential people on the planet and was named International Chef of the Year at the Lo Mejor de la Gastronomia conference in 2008. The pop-up restaurant will be located in Barangaroo precinct in Sydney.
Despite the menu still being developed, customers will be able to make bookings on October 30 from 10am and will be asked to pay the full cost in advance. “Between our sommeliers and kitchen staff we’ve already been on six research trips to Australia over the past ten months,” said Redzepi. “We’ve gone to as many regions as we can, to get a good perspective on the amazing produce in Australia.”
