Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Not only is Copenhagen's Noma renovating its kitchen, it's shaking up its ownership too. According to EPN, chef René Redzepi has bought additional shares of the company from Noma co-founder Claus Meyer and their business partner Kristian Byrge. (Meyer's latest project is Gustu, a restaurant project in Bolivia.) Noma director Peter Kreiner explains, "René Redzepi now owns the largest portion. This is Claus Meyer and Kristian Byrge, selling,"

Redzepi is also bringing a fourth owner into the mix, an American-based investor named Marc Blazer. Blazer will be joining the ownership team as chairman, and has a background in both "hospitality and banking." Redzepi tells EPN, "I expect that we with the new team can add extra energy so that we can continue to develop Noma." Noma — which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in November — has two Michelin stars and is currently ranked #2 on World's 50 Best Restaurants list. Eater has reached out to Noma for comment, stay tuned for more details.
