Noma is going to London for the Olympics.

World-renowned Danish chef René Redzepi is moving his two-star Michelin restaurant from Copenhagen to a temporary location at Claridge’s hotel in London during this summer’s games.

Redzepi called the timing “perfect” because the Copenhagen location will be closed for renovations from July 20 until August 15.

While in London, Noma will drop its new Nordic cuisine menu and focus on using local ingredients. A five course meal while Noma is in London from July 28 to August 6 is expected to cost about 1,800 kroner.

Noma has been voted the world’s best restaurant for two consecutive years, but has yet to be awarded the coveted third Michelin star. On April 30, we'll find out if Noma can once again stake its claim as the world's best when Resturant magazine and S. Pellegrino release this year's list.
