Noma, Copenhagen

For the most important of occasions, why not celebrate at the very best restaurant in the world? Though the hype around Noma has been relentless, the restaurant’s story is worth retelling. Since 2010, when head chef Réne Redzepi bumped Ferran Adrià’s legendary (and now-closed) El Bulli from the top of San Pellegrino’s Best Restaurants list, Noma took the world by storm, securing the title of World’s Best Restaurant for three years running and turning Redzepi’s New Nordic food philosophy into a household term. Simplicity is key here. Dishes are plated with wild grasses and leaves to mimic nature, and ingredients are seasonal, locally harvested and prepared using traditional Scandinavian techniques. Set in an 18th-century waterfront warehouse, the interior is uncomplicated and rustic—the perfect setting for any intimate gathering. 93 Strandgade; 45/3296-3297; noma.dk.
