Why is the restaurant closing down?
In many media reports, it is claimed that the quality of this restaurant has become a trap around its neck. Most of the dishes made here are made from wild animals, which are being demanded to be banned. Apart from this, expensive restaurants around the world including Noma are being reviewed. It is alleged that the employees here are paid very less, while the rates of the dishes served in these restaurants are very high. This is the reason that it is becoming difficult to run the restaurant smoothly further.
Noma will turn into a lab It
is believed that after closing its doors to general customers, this restaurant will be used as a full time lab, where new dishes and products will be discovered. Its chef will also now be given the status of Chief Creative Officer. The Noma project and its e-commerce operation will continue to operate as before and on certain occasions the common man will also be given a chance to enjoy food here.
Allegations of less pay , more work Noma has been accused of
underpaying its employees, including that the restaurant is taking work from its interns without paying them. However, Mr. Mikola, the chef working in the restaurant said, if you want to taste the world class item then you have to pay for it. Noma has increased its salary by $50,000 since October and is also offering good packages to interns. Many employees working in this restaurant from the year 2008 to 2021 alleged that 16 hours of work is taken here daily, in which unpaid employees are also included.
However, the chief chef of the restaurant, René Regpi, has denied these allegations and said that most people remained imprisoned in homes during the Corona period and this has had a significant impact on the business. We are closing this restaurant only for the common man, while the work of making new dishes here and taking them to the world will continue. We try our best to offer good package to our employees, but what matters is how you pay for it.
