René Redzepi has been pretty cagey about Noma 2.0, the long-anticipated follow-up to Noma, his highly-acclaimed Copenhagen restaurant, which shuttered in February of this year after 14 years in operation. Noma is an institution of global dining, decorated with two Michelin stars and christened the Best Restaurant in the World by Restaurant magazine a whopping four times.

Yesterday, though, Redzepi and his team offered a bit more clarity about the restaurant's future, revealing what they’ve been up to in this dormant period. They’ve been trekking across Scandinavia in search of ideas and ingredients from the farmers, butchers, and fishermen they've met along the way. The Noma squad will likely be reopening the restaurant in 2018, he explains; this time, they'd like to get it right.

This video is set in the Faroe Islands, quite the scenic locale. It’s a video with handsome production values; as Grub Street notes, it essentially functions as a trailer for a restaurant. I’m as puzzled as anyone else that the very genre of the restaurant trailer now exists, but this video certainly does its job. It’s transportive and tranquil, and it's piqued my interest in what this restaurant will look like from a continent away. Watch below.
