Since noma closed its doors in Copenhagen we are all patiently waiting for his new urban farm concept to open. Or hop on airplanes to follow his culinary journeys to Japan, Australia and Mexico. But Rene Redzepi opened another fantastic restaurant called 108 Copenhagen. And it’s quickly becoming another gastronomic gem in the capital of New Nordic Cuisine.
Redzepi opened the restaurant together with Kristian Baumann and they already got one Michelin-star – not even 6 months after opening. 108 Copenhagen is located in a former Red Cross warehouse, a building next to where noma used to be. They focus on the Copenhagen Kitchen, meaning that they work with local farmers for their ingredients. The menu changes frequently but always has ‘Livretter’ on it. Favorite dishes from the chefs who are meant to be shared. Lekkert!
Interior by SPACE Copenhagen
108 Copenhagen consists out of two parts: the restaurant and the coffee bar named The Corner. A small spot where they use the beans of Scandinavian coffee guru Tim Wendelboe from Oslo. But there’s more: Danish pastries and a small lunch menu. The interior of both the restaurant as The Corner is done by SPACE Copenhagen. You might know their work from 11 Howard in New York and Kul in Copenhagen (among other cool hospitality projects).
What I love about the restaurant is the light, spacious interior. Expect windows from floor to ceiling and beautiful details like the handblown lamps by the Polish designer Olgoj Chorchoj. They also worked with Scandinavian cabinet maker Malte Gormsen and use chairs of Mater.
