About: Danish restaurant Noma, the four-time winner of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants award, has opened it’s little sibling, Restaurant 108 in Christianshavn, Copenhagen. The interior, designed by Space Copenhagen, is cool and stylish, with custom-made bar-stools, benches and tables, crafted by cabinetmakers in Malte Gormsen. The beautiful combination of wood, leather and green wall panels bring interest and warmth to the otherwise industrial atmosphere. I’m a fan of the bar area, with its darker tones.
Following Noma’s main concept, but with a more casual feel and affordable price tag, Restaurant 108 serves seasonal food in collaboration with regional farmers, in an effort to better understand the ingredients and to keep exploring the region’s cooking. The menu is adventurous yet simple, with seven main dishes and three desserts to pick from – A true work of art from chef Kristian Baumann.
“Our restaurant will be a place for families to come together for a quick dinner on a Monday night, or for friends to sit down on a Friday evening for a longer meal, and really explore what we have to offer,” he said. “We want to add value to the existing traditions of an already brilliant dining scene — and hope to influence the Copenhagen kitchen.” – Source
