Introducing restaurant POPL

Dear friends,

It’s happening. The return of the noma burger.

This year we have faced some of the biggest challenges ever in our seventeen years of operating noma, dealing with the effects of the pandemic both at the restaurant and sadly the resulting closure of Restaurant 108, but it also came with a few major highlights. Above all, our summer burger season, when our doors were open for everyone to stop by, with no reservations. It was incredibly gratifying connecting with our neighbors and meeting the whole city out on the sidewalk. Welcoming both Copenhageners and Danes who traveled to visit our restaurant in that period meant a great deal, and we deeply appreciate those who came out to support us – from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

This experience inspired us to build our new restaurant, POPL; a neighborhood place for everyone to come together. Our menu is simple: burgers – organic Danish beef and vegetarian or vegan patties handmade in the noma fermentation lab – seasonal sides, ice creams and a list of our favorite wines, beers, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages. We also have a takeaway option so you can bring it home, or sit by the harbor, to eat with your friends and family.

We’ve been working night and day to make POPL into a reality, and we can’t wait to share it with all of you.

Our core team at POPL is a group of noma veterans, both front and back of house, who bring that energy, devotion to craft, attention to detail, and dedication to service, to everything we do. It’s paramount to our team not only to make the most delicious burgers possible, but also to make a product we can stand behind. Since we ended the burger season, we’ve been tweaking our recipes to add that last bit of flavor. We’ve also spent a lot of time and effort looking for some of the most thoughtful producers we can find. Our organic Danish beef comes from three farms located on the west coast of Denmark by Vadehavet, where the cattle roam and graze freely to enrich the existing wildlife and support the health of the soil. We are proud that this ecological approach, and the quality of taste it yields, is the backbone of how we source ingredients at POPL.

See you soon,

René, Stu, Line, James, Peter, and the rest of the POPL team

POPL comes from the Latin word ”populus” meaning community of people, but also refers to poplar wood, which is a nod to our approach and great respect for nature.
