Not surprisingly, Danish chef Rene Redzepi’s restaurant Noma topped the list of the hardest restaurants to get into in the world, as it receives 20,000 reservation requests a day. The earliest reservations can be made are three months out.
The Copenhagen restaurant has quickly filled the vacuum left behind by the closure of legendary Spanish restaurant el Bulli last year.
Given the rising demand for a table at Noma, pundits have already presaged that food writers will shift their attentions to birth another trend: “I Ate At Noma” pieces.
The second hardest restaurant to get into? A table at Sukiyabashi Jiro, described as the “world’s most hallowed sushi temple” and helmed by legendary master sushi chef and octogenarian Jiro Ono in Tokyo.
