Attention all food-obsessed travelers. Copenhagen’s famous Noma has been displaced by Spain’s El Celler De Can Roca as the world’s best restaurant. This year’s list, as determined by Restaurant Magazine, was announced yesterday at a star-studded awards ceremony in London, attended by hundreds of elite chefs.
As The New York Times points out, only one U.S. restaurant remained on the short list (New York’s Eleven Madison Park at No. 5), since both Per Se in New York and Alinea in Chicago were dropped from the top 10. The crown returns to Spain with Girona’s El Cellar De Can Roca grabbing the title this year. (Ferran Adria’s El Bulli was the world’s best restaurant from 2006 to 2009).
