When it comes to the particulars of its menu, Team Noma is
playing its cards very close to its chest. Sort of. The
international crew of chefs and front-of-house people behind the
famed Copenhagen restaurant has now landed ahead of the opening of
its 10-week run in Sydney, and though they're refusing to release
details of what they'll be serving when they open on Australia Day,
they're prolific users of social media, and a flick through the
Instagram feeds of chef René Redzepi, or Australian-born team
leader (and bona-fide Insta-sensation) Katherine Bont reveals more
than a few hints.
In addition to suggestions of what will appear on the plates of the lucky few who scored tickets (and coughed up $485 a head) to dine at the Barangaroo pop-up, it's clear that the Noma gang has settled into their adopted city with uncommon ease, ticking the boxes with everything from visits to Bondi and Bunnings to dinner at backstreet Korean favourite Madang, Thai snacks at Boon Café, learning about wine in Camperdown Memorial Rest Park, cooling off with soft-serve at Aqua S, going deep at Acme, punching banh mi at Marrickville Pork Roll and savouring more than a few sunrises at their city-central digs.
There might not be much for the casual observer to see at the restaurant quite yet, but, rest assured, team Noma Australia is putting in the hard yards.

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.
Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.
