Matt Orlando, the head chef at Noma for over two years, is leaving to open his own place along Copenhagen’s harbor. Amass, which is scheduled to debut on July 1, will be more casual than Noma, and it won’t serve up Nordic food. The restaurant will have a chef’s garden, communal table, and fare influenced by Orlando’s American heritage. This could mean the greatest short ribs on earth. [Politiken via Eater]
