The World’s Best Restaurant Is Having a Garage Sale

Mmm, plate porn

During Copenhagen restaurant’s current two-year hiatus from dinner service, diners have endured a 27,000-person waitlist and literally climbed Mount Everest to get a meal prepped by one of its chefs.

When René Redzepi’s restaurant finally reopens at a new home next year, don’t expect it to get any easier. But buying a piece of the old place? We can help with that.

Following in the foodsteps of other world-famous restaurants (like the Four Seasons NYC), Noma and Chicago’s Wright auction house will be selling off pieces from Noma’s old location at Strandgade 93 in Copenhagen, including Nordic-style interior furnishings, décor, tableware and more.

Designed exclusively for Noma by artists like J.L. Møller and Københavns Møbelsnedkeri, each piece  — including hand-carved cutlery, custom ceramicware and wooden furniture  — was hand-picked by Redzepi to reside in his two-Michelin-star restaurant.

“The design helps make the first impression,” Redzepi previously said. “I actually feel that we’ve managed to create a place where the design works and goes hand in hand with the function.”  

Made up of close to 500 lots that could fetch anywhere from $100 to $20,000 a piece, the auction will take place on November 2nd at 8 a.m. CST. After the sale is over, items ship from Copenhagen.
