Fine dining restaurant Noma has earned a reputation worldwide as one of the finest restaurants in the world. After bringing versions of their menus to pop-ups in Mexico and Australia, the Copenhagen-based restaurant is finally coming to NYC. However, unlike their previous experiences, this one won’t be open to the public. Instead, Noma’s Rene Redzepi will offer a series of dinners to members of a Manhattan club called Spring Place. Even with a price tag of $2000, the dinners are already sold out.
Diners will be served a tasting menu including wine pairings, but no details have been revealed about what exactly will be on the menu. Eater.com revealed that “some dinners will be for Noma partners like American Express, while Sunday’s event is exclusive to members of Spring Place, who pay $900 per month on top of a $2,000 initiation fee for the privilege of connecting with a community of creative elites.”
Unlike Noma’s previous restaurant services which lasted weeks, this pop-up will only last a weekend. With Redzepi revealing no other plans to bring his culinary skills to America, it’s not really a surprise that wealthy New Yorkers coughed up $2000 apiece for a taste of his genius.
