Noma Named World’s Best Restaurant of 2014; Canada snubbed


LONDON — Canada hasn’t scored, but René Redzepi has done it again, claiming the top spot on the annual World’s Best Restaurant list for the fourth time for his Danish gem Noma.


“Noma chef-owner René Redzepi is recognized for his highly original, sometimes visceral version of new Nordic cuisine. His food strives to reflect the Danish landscape and culture with signature dishes such as ‘Blackcurrant Berries and Roses,’” reads a press release about the top-place toque’s food.

Second place went to Spain’s El Celler de Can Roca, while third place went to Italy’s Osteria Francescana.

And, while Canada failed to receive a mention on the list yet again, Spain, France and the U.S. tied for the highest number of restaurants featured with seven.

Organized by the U.K.’s Restaurant magazine, and presented in London, the award winners are chosen by The Diners Club World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, a group of more than 900 international leaders in the culinary world.
