The Modena-based restaurant, which has three Michelin stars, has undergone a massive interior and exterior transformation which will highlight chef Massimo Bottura's passion for contemporary art. The restaurant will exhibit three paintings from the chef's personal collection, including Tourists by Maurizio Cattelan.
In a tweet, Bottura said the new Osteria Francescana will be all about ''Italian design, Italian art, Italian food.'' As a testament to those words, the redesign of the restaurant's entrance was done in collaboration with Bottega Veneta, a luxury line of Italian goods, and lighting designer Davide Groppi, according to Spoon HQblog.
Now a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Noma has changed, but not necessarily on the plate. According to Kenneth Foong, it's all about the way the team works, which is closer to a tech company than a traditional restaurant. Read our exclusive interview with Noma's head chef.
