After a one-year stint in the number two spot, René Redzepi's Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark, has been declared the best restaurant in the world - marking its fourth time as the top seed.

Restaurant magazine announced the honor as it unveiled its "World's 50 Best Restaurants" list at London's Guildhall on Monday. The annual event, sponsored by  S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, is a celebration of the crème de la crème of global gastronomy.

The list, now in its 12th year, is curated by 900 restaurant international leaders, including chefs, food critics and restaurateurs.

As for how the list is created, each of the panelists casts seven votes for their best restaurant experiences in the last 18-month voting period. To attempt to keep the awards on a truly "world's best" scale, at least three of the panelist's votes must be for a restaurant outside their respective geographical region.

"There is no pre-determined checklist of criteria; for example an interesting experience in a simple establishment, where exceptional innovation was discovered, could be judged better than a more opulent meal from a widely feted restaurant team," notes the academy's manifesto.

The ceremony comes on the heels of the announcement that a few of the chefs on the list are taking their restaurant concepts beyond their home turf: Redzepi announced Noma (No. 1) would be moving the entire staff to Tokyo for two months at the beginning of 2015. Meanwhile, Heston Blumenthal announced he and the staff behind The Fat Duck (No. 47) would be flying south from Bray, England, to Melbourne, Australia, for six months in February 2015.

In addition to the World’s 50 Best Restaurants List, a variety of supplemental awards were given out throughout the evening, including the "One to Watch" award for Saison in San Francisco, California. Seven other restaurants from the United States were honored this year: Alinea in Chicago, Illinois; Daniel, Le Bernardin, Per Se and Eleven Madison Park in New York; The French Laundry in Yountville, California; and Coi in San Francisco, California.

These are the world's 50 best restaurants for 2014:

1) Noma (Copenhagen, Denmark)

Shrimp and ramsom. Shrimp and bam, son.

    I think it's safe to say that I never have and never will eat at any of the 50 best restaurants in the world. I think it's also safe to say that I'm not missing a thing. Those idiotic "delicacies" don't even look appetizing. More importantly, I can eat for a month for the price of one serving of some of them, and in some parts of the world a whole family could eat for three months. The attitudes toward food reflected by this article, those restaurants, and food snobs in general is not just unhealthy and decadent, it's immoral. Bon appetite.

    Correction, NYC was a typo. Sorry, I am not going to trust a list from a British magazine on the World's 50 Best Restaurants, they have no taste buds. The only thing I can agree with is that several Spanish restaurants are among the top 10, but how could there not be a single restaurant from France, California, Asia, or Latin America, in the top 10, yet there are two from the UK? They claim to have polled critics, chefs, etc., but clearly there is some major bias, and I am willing to bet most of those polled came from the UK, as something is clearly very wrong with this list!

          No worries, besides, I am a citizen of three countries, two of which are in the EU, lived in Asia, and Europe, for more than 1/3 of my life, and ran several restaurants in Europe. Despite ignorance in some areas, Americans still have a far superior palates when compared to the English. What is truly ignorant is how the English say they have good food in England, and they call it Indian, LOL! The Indians were wise enough to bring their food with them. Saying that England has good food because you can find Indian food there, if you go out of your way to look for it, is like saying that Dubai knows skiing, because they built an artificial ski slope there; or Spain has bad food, because someone built an English restaurant there.

    There is a great deal of beautiful food, well presented and, I am certain, delicious. Some of the food requires technology for presentation; some down to earth food critic once gave points for "Bread and Circus." How to rate restaurants on the magnitude of the extraordinary infinity of the clients' shallowness is difficult and I see that in some of the "conversation" in these comments. Food as entertainment should be served with a 100% gratuity to children of a starving nation.

    41, i.e. 82%, of the "world's 50 best" happen to be in Europe and its former colonies in the Americas? One restaurant in China and that in the former British territory, now Special Administrative Region, of Hong Kong? How about where the other 1.3 billion Chinese people enjoy fine dining for over 5000 years, or where the other 76% of the globe's population outside of Europe and the Americas cook and live? This elitist Euro-centric list is a travesty, an insult to fine restaurants and diners outside of Europe's cultural sphere and a reflection of poorly traveled reviewers.

        Madame Vore, the bias here I find objectionable is not so much the website's in reporting this news, but rather the magazine's which deems the list it created the 50 best restaurants in the WORLD, when clearly these are not.

      Just because 2 billion people think squatting around a fire shoveling rice into their faces is 'high cuisine' doesn't make it so. Save your self loathing for your therapy sessions. Fact is white, Europeans have done more for the planet over the last 300 years than all your little hut dwellers combined.

      April 29, 2014 at 12:23 am |
      • Bill Thompson

        Norm, it's unfortunate to find a racist such as yourself on this site where food seems to be the main point. Go ahead, visit Shanghai and look for hut dwellers, you'll be sorely disappointed. I lived and worked from China for 30 years and ran companies there and from there in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan and have happily repatriated myself free of 'self-loathing', but man, I sure ate well and locally during much of my ex-pat tenure, often from recipes refined thousands of years ago. You ought to get around a bit more, look around Norm, the world is round.

      No. Quite a few are located in quiet towns in the countryside. For example, The French Laundry is in Yountville, which is a town surrounded by vineyards for miles in every direction. A decent number of these restaurants are in similar countryside settings.

    It is so so subjective. The best food I have eaten is my home food. I am a cook and enjoy cooking. Yes I have not been those listed restaurants, but have been plenty of highly rated restaurants across the globe. These restaurants on the list perhaps are some of the better ones who pays the magazine to be listed. Remember the scientific study about the taste of wine.....even experts thought most expensive is better although it was same wine labeled differently. Old saying – appetite is the best sauce, carry much of the weight in delicacy.

    April 28, 2014 at 8:30 pm |

    The games you have to go through to get reservations at The French Laundry are ridiculous, and really off putting. I dined there early in their existence...when reservations were normal. But I haven't returned because I will not jump through the hoops. Not worth it.

    The last time I reserved at Daniel, on the other hand, it was easy and pleasant. The prime times were not available, of course, but I have no problem dining on a non-chic day and a bit early or late. As long as the restaurant treats me with respect.

    April 28, 2014 at 8:26 pm |
    • Otis

      Spot on. They should change their name from the French Laundry to the Arrogant Bistro. Not only are the reservations a game and you have to book two months ahead but the service and portions are a laugh. We went once with another couple because they wanted to go but never again. There are way too many good restaurants in the Napa Valley and in Healdsburg to put up with their nonsense.

    While I like to think that I want "the best", it is often at the judgement of others who are the "high priests" of the discipline. While I am a "car guy" I have no desire for a 200 mph super car. While I like to look good, I have no desire to look like those overly handsome, too skinny, fashonistas in the mags. While I like to eat good food, none of these places make me hungry. I want a good cook, not a chef. I want good food, not a "creation". I have no desire to stand in line, pay a fortune and bow in umbrage to some boy/girl wonder of a chef. Ladies, would you ever wear the fashions you see on the runway? Same with food.

      I would wear Runway, and I do. Runway does end up in department stores, and is easily accessible. So are some of the food creations, really. Take Wylie Dufresne of wd~50. He is famous for eggs and deconstructing/reconstructing food. Super basic ingredient, but so many ways to prepare. They say that if you can master (I mean really master, not Bob Evans scrambled eggs master) all the different ways to cook an egg, you can cook anything. wd~50 didn't make the list of top 50, but highly regarded as a top restaurant in the US. The creations are incredible with various techniques, but at the end of the day quite comforting. Take a look at the menu right now...shrimp grits and cookie dough ice cream. Not so scary, but good food. Creation or not.

      Many restaurants are taking those creations and interpreting them at various price points. It happens for a reason, because these restaurants serve good food that inspires. Take truffle fries. You can find truffle fries at many "pubs" or restaurants across the US. Good food, but likely didn't start at one of those places with your "good cooks." It likely started with a chef who was using truffles.

      Fancy cars and runway clothes go through the same thing. It starts with the inspirational/aspirational product and then gets "re-interpreted" for a different price point, by good brands and good designers. For example, the Lexus SUV vs the Hyundai Tuscan. The Isabel Marant Runway wedge sneaker (the Bekket) vs the Nike Sky HI, or even just the Steve Madden Copy. Good design by nameless designers.

      So yeah, give me runway. Give me chefs. I enjoy the creative and the innovations. I like to try the original concept before it gets regurgitated for the masses. My senses are bored with just ok good food. I want something a bit more interesting.

      You should also try Sangaam in Dhaka, Bangladesh. One of my favorite dosa spots on the planet, even if Bangladesh isn't the dosa originator.

    So where the heck are the woman? Hard to believe only men can create the finest restaurants in the world. How many men where in the voting group of 900?

      It's "50 Best Restaurants", not "50 Best Kitchens in Which Sandwiches are Made".

        She repaired and reopened Chez Panisse several years ago. It's open for dinner at this very moment.
