Ants on a Shrimp

Friday, July 29 - Thursday, August 4, 2016

What happens when the world’s most acclaimed restaurant picks up and moves halfway across the world? Named for just one of the many surprising dishes that René Redzepi serves at his esteemed Copenhagen foodie destination Noma (named “World’s Best Restaurant” in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014), ANTS ON A SHRIMP follows the superstar chef and his team as they relocate to Japan to set up a five-week pop-up in Tokyo. But creating an all-new, fourteen-course menu foraged from local sources in an unfamiliar country presents unforeseen challenges–and may be a make-or-break moment for the risk-taking Redzepi’s career. This cross-cultural culinary odyssey is both a behind-the-scenes look at a food world visionary and a mouthwatering showcase for some of the most adventurous cuisine on the planet.
