Introducing Restaurant Barr!

By Thorsten Schmidt - June 7, 2017

 

Dear friends,

For years, I have been talking with René about creating a new kind of restaurant in Copenhagen. We have been holding out for the perfect space – and we finally found it, inside the old home of noma on the city’s iconic waterfront. Together in partnership we are opening restaurant Barr, on Wednesday, 5th July.

Barr will not be another Nordic restaurant. Rather, it will draw from the eating and drinking traditions of the North Sea; an area that spans Scandinavia, Benelux and the British Isles.… More »

René, Rosio and our test kitchen on their research trip

Dear friends,

This week we want to share a bit about the process of designing and building our restaurant in the jungle.

It truly is jungle. About 50 meters from the water begins a thick dense landscape. Full of animals; birds of all colors and sizes, snakes, caimans and even jaguars. There is no existing infrastructure at all, no plumbing electricity or water – we are bringing all of that in.… More »
