When we first came to Japan, we asked what it meant to be in love with a place. Because this surely felt like that. Turns out we weren’t the only ones who wondered. Noma has long held Japan in their hearts and its outsize influence in their kitchen. And this coming spring, the groundbreaking Copenhagen restaurant is landing its latest global residency at Ace Hotel Kyoto.
From March 15 to May 20, noma will be camped out in our main restaurant, with lunch and dinner seatings offered four days per week — Wednesday through Saturday. In expected fashion, the team is preparing something poetic, looking to the generational knowledge of local craftspeople and working alongside foragers, farmers, ceramicists, hunters and fishmongers. It’s the kind of meeting of mind, hand and muse our Kyoto home was built to house.
The collaboration already feels ripe for culinary lore and we’re marking the moment with a special package: two or more nights at Ace Hotel Kyoto and a reservation for two to Noma Kyoto.
”I believe Kyoto to be the birthplace of the western tasting menu, and it remains one of the most important cities through which to understand the fine dining scene today. Much of my own journey and inspiration can be boiled down to a handful of important moments, and going to Japan and Kyoto for the first time is one of them. We have always wanted to return and explore this region as a team.
We have been working on this specific project for the past two years, and we have had a team on the ground since late spring, foraging and researching what will form the foundation of our Kyoto menu. Our main inspiration comes from the very heart of Kyoto, the kaiseki cuisine, while not at all being a Japanese restaurant. We come to be inspired, to learn, to absorb new creative processes and to hopefully bring back new perspectives and a clearer vision for how to be noma.”
— René Redzepi, chef and owner of noma
