World’s Best 50 Restaurants Revealed


LONDON, U.K. — Denmark’s famed Noma has once again taken the top award for the third-consecutive year on the S.Pellegrino and Acqua list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Unfortunately, not one Canadian restaurant made the list.

The top–ranked restaurants and chefs — awarded in London, U.K, at the Guildhall yesterday — included El Celler de Can Roca in Spain in the second spot, and Mugaritz, also from Spain, in the third spot. The award for the Highest New Entry was given to Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in London, which debuted in the ninth spot.

Meanwhile, Chef Thomas Keller was honoured with the S.Pellegrino Lifetime Achievement award after spending each of the past 10 years on the list under one guise or another. His original

Californian restaurant, The French Laundry, which held the top spot for two years (2003-04), re-entered the list this year at 43.
