For one day—from the beef garam pastries being glazed at 6 AM to the last dish leaving the kitchen in the evening—MUNCHIES got to be a fly on the wall at restaurant 108 in Copenhagen. Chef Kristian Baumann opened 108 during the summer of 2016 in partnership with Noma, the world-beating restaurant that forever changed dining in the Nordic region, so the spotlight has been intense.
We follow Kristian and his staff around the kitchen and dining room, head to the organic farm where they source produce, and the sommelier even takes us on a wild boat ride to pick up wine supplies delivered from France by sea. Even though 108 shares ideas and a fermentation lab with Noma, the restaurant is very much its own place: It doesn't require a black Amex to eat here, it has an a la carte menu with generous sharing dishes, and a bustling café.
