The Danish restaurant that has held the number one spot on the World’s Best Restaurants list four times in the past six years is coming to Sydney. Noma, renowned for its ultra-seasonal 20 course menu, will be opening a pop-up restaurant in Barangaroo come January. For passionate foodies, it is summer's hottest ticket.

Owner and head chef at Copenhagen’s two Michelin starred restaurant, Rene Redzepi, will fly his entire team (including 35 chefs and 30 waitstaff) around the world to our shores from January 26 to April 2, 2016. Redzepi has already visited Australia to explore and research the country’s landscape to create a menu—yet to be confirmed—based on local ingredients and produce. “Australia has always drawn me in—its great cities, its generous people, and of course its ever-present sun,” he said in the announcement. “But what really boggles my mind is the differences you find in its landscapes and ingredients, because honestly I have never seen anything like it.”

For culinary devotees, Noma’s Copenhagen eatery is the ultimate dining experience and has an estimated waiting list of three months. Therefore, you’ll need to get in quick if you want to get your hands on a $485 seat at the Sydney pop-up dining experience. To prove it, bookings at the Tokyo pop-up sold out in just hours, with the restaurant acquiring a waiting list of over 60, 000 people. 

Bookings for all tables will open simultaneously on Friday, October 30, at 10am AEDT online at the Noma website.
