The World's 50 Best Restaurants list has been announced, and the big news is of course that Noma has regained its title as number one restaurant in the world. In his speech, Redzepi addressed the crowd: "Wood sorrel conquered caviar. The seal fucker came out on top." Noma held the top spot last in 2012, and took the title for the first time in 2010. Last year's number one, el Celler de Can Roca, has dropped to number two.
The US had two restaurants in the top ten: Grant Achatz's Chicago restaurant Alinea broke into the top ten at number nine and Daniel Humm's Eleven Madison Park rose one spot to number four. Daniel Patterson's Coi in San Francisco made its debut on the list at #49. Thomas Keller has two restaurants on the list, Per Se dropping from #11 to #30 but French Laundry rising to 44 from 47. Daniel Boulud'sDaniel in New York City dropped from 29 to 40, and Eric Ripert's Le Bernardin dropped from 19 to 21. Joshua Skenes' Saison in San Francisco was named the "One to Watch" restaurant.
