Nicolai Ellitsgaard Pedersen

The Danish head chef at the world’s biggest underwater restaurant UNDER, opening March 2019.
Semi-submerged beneath the icy waters of the North Atlantic, guests are invited to dine 5.5m below the surface; the panoramic view of the ocean floor providing the dramatic backdrop.
Exclusively serving The Immersion Menu, comprised of multiple courses, UNDER highlights the hidden treasures of the raw beauty of local nature, and the delicious varieties of the pulsing sea.
Cooperating closely with local farmers and fishermen to source the best local ingredients, head-chef Nicolai Ellitsgaard and his team prepare innovative seasonal dishes that capture the essence of their surroundings. As a result, the menu reflects the changing seasons of the harsh and pristine Norwegian nature on the southern tip of Norway with its rich and abundant natural resources.

UNDER´s tasting menu will typically contain an exquisite variety of seafood caught just on the other side of UNDER´s panoramic window.
