The enfants terribles of the Danish food world are now ready with a new take on beer
On July 5, a restaurant entitled Barr will open its doors with owner and master-cook Thorsten Schmidt in charge of the kitchen.
As the name implies, beer will be the main driver behind the restaurant that is situated in Noma’s old premises at Strandgade 93.

North Sea traditions
Barr will draw from the eating and drinking traditions of the North Sea.
“The name Barr is an old Irish word for ‘crops’ and an old Nordic word for ‘barley, a staple throughout this stretch of Europe and, of course, one of the foundations of beer. Barr will celebrate this diverse region’s cold-country cooking, its breweries, and its shared devotion to conviviality,” Schmidt said.
The cuisine will be built on traditional regional food from the area, and there will be both frikadeller and schnitzel on the menu.
Beer – and lots of it
Andreas Pedersen, who comes from Amager Bryghus, will brew the beer to supply the restaurant’s 20 pumps.
They have also employed an aquavit sommelier, Johan Blasbjerg from Mikkeller Øl & Brød, so there will be no excuse for anyone to be thirsty.
Finally, the décor of the restaurant has been created by the Norwegian architecture firm Snöhetta, which is also responsible for the new underground extension to Ordrupgaard Museum.
