World's 50 Best Restaurants Announced

Restaurant magazine revealed its 10th annual list of the "World's 50 Best Restaurants" list on Monday at an awards ceremony in London's Guildhall. Chef René Redzepi's Nordic restaurant Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark pulled what CNN is calling "a culinary hat-trick," staying in the No. 1 spot for three years in a row.

The list is compiled by the World's 50 Best Restaurants Academy—a panel of more than 800 chefs, food critics, restaurateurs and other leaders in the restaurant industry.

Heston Blumenthal saw two restaurants earn places on the list: The Fat Duck (No. 13) and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal (the highest new entry at No. 9). The Fat Duck topped the list in 2005.

The Ledbury in London was the highest climber in 2012, moving up 20 spots from 2011.

Thomas Keller, the 2012 S.Pellegrino Lifetime Achievement Award Winner, earned two spots on the list this year with Per Se at No. 6 and The French Laundry at No. 43. Six other restaurants from the United States were also crowned this year: Alinea in Chicago; Daniel, Le Bernardin, Momofuku Ssäm Bar and Eleven Madison Park in New York; and Manresa in Los Gatos, California.

Of the Top 10 restaurants, three are in Spain and two are in New York City.
