My beloved and I had tried to book Noma at precisely 10pm (Australian eastern time) on 1 March for lunch dining during our trip to Europe in May. Although I hit refresh on my browser at least a *gazillion* times when the booking system opened, I was unsuccessful and instead was asked to leave my details should there be a cancellation.
Now, I typically have little faith in these "leave your details and we'll call you if someone pikes" arrangements, but lo and behold, Noma did call us. I don't know who on earth would turn down a booking at Noma, but I sure am grateful that they did! This will truly be the experience of a lifetime for foodies like us. I'm not quite sure I can adequately articulate my excitement at this point, but I can tell you that I was so elated by the 2am phone call that I immediately ran (a hard motion with a busted knee and at 2am!) to fetch my lap top and check that promised confirmation email had arrived (it had) and salivate over the sample menu on their website.
I'm going to Noma, baby, yeah!
