Danish restaurant Noma was tonight named 'The finest place to dine on the planet' at the 'Top 100 Restaurants' awards held in London’s Guildhall.
The fine dining awards saw the experimental Copenhagen restaurant run by 36-year-old chef Rene Redzepi regain the top spot it lost to Catalan restaurant El Celler de Can Roca last year. It has been voted number one in three of the last four years.
Italy’s Osteria Francescana which is home to the avant-garde genius of Massimo Bottura finished in the bronze position.
While a Spanish restaurant may have lost its top spot, nationally the country fared well at the San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna World’s 50 Best Restaurants, produced by Britain’s Restaurant Magazine. Three Spanish restaurants finished in the top 10 while the UK had two in the top 10, as did the US.
