There is one restaurant in Europe that is so amazing that it is now going to open in the U.S. However, you will have to be quick about getting a reservation here. Here, meaning Noma, a restaurant that is Copenhagen-based and is among the 50 best restaurants in the world. You will soon see this restaurant in New York, sometime in the month of May, and getting reservations won’t be easy. This experience is available only to the people who hold American Express cards and are part of the Global Dining Access programs. You will also be able to reserve tables through Resy.
Building a Replica
To make it even more special, the owner and the chef, René Redzepi, will be taking over this venue, located on 26 Bridge Street, which was a metal factory in the Dumbo neighborhood in Brooklyn. However, this space would then be unrecognizable. As per The Points Guy, this spot would be made to resemble the original Noma, like the one at Copenhagen. The place will have more flair with greenery and subtle Scandinavian style. So, when you visit this place, it will feel like you are visiting the restaurant in Europe.
The owner will prepare dishes that will work well for everyone’s taste palate. The menu would be curated carefully. The food will be sourced locally and work with companies such as Long Island City’s Regalis Foods and shop for produces at Union Square Greenmarket.
The price for one person will be $700 and this would include the wine pairings carefully done by Mads Kleppe, the head sommelier at the restaurant, who will focus on selecting natural wines. There are only 50 spots available each night that the restaurant will be open in NYC. If you want a seat at this restaurant then you have to be sure you can book it fast on Resy and get a table for the night.
Two brothers from Abington unofficially set one of the weirdest world records you would hear about. One of them, Matt MacMillan has always had an appetite for competition. He says that nine years ago, he wanted to break a Guinness World Record for throwing a grape in the air, running as far as he can, and catching it with his mouth. He then added that someone else broke the record and now that he’s nine years older, he’s much slower.
In the meantime, he kept his focus on his hobby of entering radio contests and making videos. However, with the current world events, he feasted his eyes on a new goal.
The brothers made a formal request to Guinness, which resulted in a lengthy process to set all the right conditions. The brothers hired a land surveyor to measure the distance while calling on their family and friends for extra support and manpower. With two witnesses, six cameras, and about twenty hot dogs, they surely locked eyes on the prize.
A Flying Hot Dog
It took the brothers five tries for the duo to successfully throw and catch a hot dog for a distance of 143. Their attempt breaks the former record of 120 feet. The catch was legally deemed by several witnesses but it waits for official confirmation from Guinness.
Tossing a Hot Dog
The brothers’ parents were there to cheer on their children. They say that it warms their heart when they see them together and having fun. The brothers will put together their official video and witness evidence and formally submit them to the Guinness organization. It will take up to 12 weeks to review. Upon official confirmation, they will receive a certificate about their ‘hot dog’ world record.
Matt joked that it’s all about glory and a little certificate that says that the brothers have a world record.
