René Redzepi, the chef and co-owner of the Copenhagen restaurant Noma , has tested positive for Covid and will not appear at the restaurant’s weeklong dinner series in Brooklyn, American Express wrote in an email to attendees on Monday. As a result, American Express said it would refund the price of the dinner — $700 a person — to all those who paid to attend the sold-out series, which continues through Friday. In its email, American Express Platinum Presents, a partner in the event along with Resy, assured guests that the Noma team in Brooklyn, including the co-owner Peter Kreiner and the chef Thomas Frebel, a longtime lieutenant for Mr. Redzepi, had not been in contact with Mr. Redzepi, and were being tested daily.

(AP) — A trial for a former college student who randomly killed a Florida couple in their garage six years ago and then chewed on one victim’s face was set to begin Monday. Circuit Judge Sherwood Bauer will decide whether Austin Harrouff, 25, goes to prison for the rest of his life, or to a mental hospital.

It is being held in Stuart, north of West Palm Beach, and is expected to last … [Read more...] about Judge to decide fate of man accused in face-biting attack
