One of the Noma co-founders has the ‘future of dining’ in the works in Williamsburg

The Nordic food craze continues in NYC with Refslund’s new restaurant.

With the opening of Claus Meyer’s Great Northern Food Hall in Grand Central this year and Mads Refslund’s Acme in NoHo back in 2012, the Nordic food scene in New York City has yet to slow down. Refslund revealed to James Corden of “The Late Late Show” in a Meridian video that he plans to open a new rustic restaurant, Fire and Ice, in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Refslund explained to Corden that the concept of fire and ice “takes it back to nature.” The new restaurant will include a bonfire and an iceberg in the kitchen.

“Everything is clean with natural flavors. This is the future of dining — be more simple, and don't pollute the food. It's not really a restaurant. It's more like a kitchen. A kitchen with a restaurant inside of it,” Refslund said in the video.

Details of the exact location and opening date have yet to be announced.

You didn’t get into Noma Mexico? Don’t worry. The Riviera Maya beach town of Tulum has long afforded visitors and locals plenty of wonderful cuisine and a robust dining scene long before René Redzepi temporarily traded Copenhagen for the Caribbean. Tulum’s vibe is beach breezy and most restaurants on the laid-back hotel strip enjoy ocean views, but the oft-overlooked inland town also has a few gems of its own. Whether it’s the wood-fired cooking that defines Hartwood, the handmade pastas that originate in the kitchen of Posada Margherita, or the cochinita pibil breakfast tacos in town, Tulum boasts plenty of options that might be as good as anything you’ll find on René Redzepi’s temporary menu.

Casa Jaguar

Casa Jaguar exudes a sort of Lost World vibe with stone walls and wooden beams strewn with hanging lanterns and plants that seem to creep closer and closer as the night goes on. The highly recommended whole fish, glazed in smoked butter and cooked in a wood burning oven, is the star here. Fresh juice cocktails are created by the buzzing bar, most infused with agave spirits such as mezcal, tequila, and raicilla. If you just feel like drinking, you can hit the spot sister bar in town, Todos Santos. casajaguar.com.

Posada Margherita

Not feeling Mexican-inspired? Book a reservation at Posada Margherita, inside the hotel of the same name. Set in an indoor-outdoor space that encompasses multiple, multi-level decks overlooking the ocean, this long time favorite embodies a good vibe and caters to both couples seeking romance and, on the earlier side, families. Pastas are the standout here, with popular plates ranging from a standard pomodoro to zucchini and shrimp linguine. Local fish specials round out the menu and gluten-free pastas are also available. Cash only. posadamargherita.com.

Simple

There’s a glass case filled with whatever fish is fresh that day, mostly imported from the Pacific coast (Kumamoto oysters, bluefin tuna, chocolate clams from Baja), as well as local seafood including sustainably sourced lobsters from Punta Allen at chef Ricardo Zapata’s Simple. Pick your fish and the able chef (who has had stints at world class kitchens like Arzak) will bring it back to your table grilled, as ceviche, as tiradito, or a handful of other preparations. Thirsty? Quench it with solid margaritas and ancho chile laced cocktails, and if you need a place to crash, there’s a handful of rooms available for rent just off the beach. www.simpletulum.com

Safari

Set between the palmy jungle and the white sandy beaches, this campfire-like experience is anchored by a small dining room, a fire-pit, and a kitchen working out of a 1971 Airstream. Opened in 2015 when chef Luis Aguilar (ex-Tacombi) returned from New York City to Mexico, the menu focuses on fresh, local ingredients, inspired by traditional Mexican recipes. The tacos get high marks, from beetroot to crispy fish, shrimp mole verde to al pastor, and are to be washed down with local Pescadores craft beer. Facebook Page.
