The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014

Last night, 28th April 2014, London’s Guildhall played host to the elite of the gastronomic world with a glittering ceremony to announce and celebrate The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna. The list is considered by some as one of the highlights of the global gastronomic calendar, and has emerged as an upstart rival to the Michelin rankings.

Danish restaurant Noma has regained its crown as the world’s best restaurant. The two Michelin star restaurant in Copenhagen was toppled in last year’s awards after three consecutive years by El Celler de Can Roca, a Spanish family restaurant, but has now had its title restored.
