Copenhagen is getting too small for Denmark's gourmet mogul Claus Meyer.

In 2016, the chef and co-owner of Noma will open a 1,200 sqm restaurant in Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Station in New York City.

The restaurant, a brassiere named The New Nordic Food Hall, will allow New Yorkers to get a taste of the New Nordic cuisine served at Meyer's Deli, Meyer's Bageri and Almanak in Copenhagen, which are all famous for using seasonal ingredients endemic to Scandinavia.

Big city, big business
The project is a collaboration between Meyer and local restaurant consultants Heyer Performance Inc. New York investor Hugo Uys has along with others decided to support the ambitious project in the big city, where the rent alone costs around 1.8 million dollars a year.

Meyer and his family will move to New York in 2015 for one and half years to start up the company.
