50 Best Restaurants in the World

Discover the 50 Best Restaurants in the World

Today San Pellegrino and Restaurant magazine released their annual list of the world's top 50 best restaurants. The rankings are compiled by The World's 50 Best Restaurants Academy, a group of 800 restaurant industry leaders from 27 separate regions around the globe who vote in strict confidentiality for their seven favorite restaurants across the world.

So who took this year's coveted top spot? In past years, it's gone to the likes of Ferran Adria's El Bulli, but for the second year in a row, it was awarded to Rene Redzepi's Noma, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The highest-ranking American restaurant is Alinea, coming it at number six. Notable omissions include Thomas Keller's famed The French Laundry, and Gordon Ramsay's flagship, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, is off the list again this year as well.
