Image: INSTAGRAM/NOMACPH By Ariel Bogle Australia2016-03-14 05:35:32 UTC Sydneysiders and those willing to get on a plane for the opportunity  to dine at Noma — now is your last chance. The restaurant, considered to be one of the top venues in the world, relocated to Sydney from Copenhagen in 2016 for a 10 week pop-up with a focus on Australian produce. Starting in January, reservations were swiftly booked out.  For its last night on April 2, however, the company is doing something out of the ordinary. It will be auctioning off its last tables on eBay to benefit charities OzHarvest and MAD, Good Food reported .

"[It's] a chance to raise money and recognise the work being done by our friends at OzHarvest and MAD , and to celebrate the welcome we've received and the new friendships that we have made throughout our Australian adventure," he said. Tables for two, four, six and eight are on the chopping block, but they won't come cheap. Typically, dining at the Sydney establishment starts from A$485 per head without wine, but a table for two  in the auction began at A$1,500 and now sits at A$2,025 as of writing, and there are almost 10 days to go. Still, it does include beverage pairing. Here's hoping the lucky winners get their money's worth of sea urchins, emu fruit and Buddha's hand. Have something to add to this story?
