    Ólafur ElÍasson opens a pop-up restaurant in Iceland. From the 11th of August on, his sister Victoria Elíasdóttir and the world-famous Dane will be at the Marshall Restaurant + Bar in Reykjavik. Lunch and dinner are served there for almost three months, the cuisine is seasonal and regional - following the example of the Studio Olafur Eliasson (SOE) Kitchen in Berlin: the artist's famous studio canteen, where cooking for his team of 100 people takes place four days a week. However, unlike the canteen in Prenzlauer Berg, in Iceland fish is often served - after all, the Marshall Restaurant is located directly at the harbor.

    The project aims to transfer the unique atmosphere of the SOE kitchen from Berlin to Reykjavik. And create a space for extraordinary dishes, the respect for nature, experiments and discussions about food as creative inspiration - and, as in Berlin, you dine together at long tables. Eliasson's works of art are installed in the restaurant. Also half-sister Victoria Elíasdóttir is an experienced expert in the restaurant business, she was previously head chef in the Berlin restaurant Dóttir. Info: www.olafureliasson.net
