Bad news for the Roca brothers! El Celler de Can Roca is no longer the best restaurant in the world, at least according to The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, an award given by the influential magazine “Restaurant”. And it is that the Catalan establishment has lost the scepter of haute cuisine to the benefit of the Danish Noma.
Thus, Rene Redzepi’s restaurant in Copenhagen regains its primacy in world gastronomy, which was taken from it last year by Celler de Can Roca from Girona. But this is not the only Spanish restaurant in the list of the ten best restaurants in the world. Do you want to know what the others are?
Top ten restaurants
As we were saying, Celler de Can Roca is not the only Spanish restaurant at the top of the list. Mugaritz (Guipúzcoa), by Andoni Luis Aduriz, goes from fourth to sixth place in the ranking, while Juan Mari and Elena Arzak remain in eighth place after eleven years on a list that is not without controversy . The top 10 is completed with the Italian Osteria Francescana (Modena), Eleven Madison Park (New York), Dinner (London), DOM (Sao Paulo), Alinea (Chicago) and The Ledbury (London).
More Spanish restaurants
It is clear that Spanish cuisine is reaping great successes. And it is that in addition to the 3 restaurants that we have mentioned before, there are four other establishments that are among the 50 best in the world: in position 26, from the Biscayan Eneko Atxa, the Azumendi restaurant; at number 41 on the list, Quique Dacosta with the Denia restaurant that bears his name; in 34 is the Etxebarri Asador de Víctor Arguinzoniz, in Atxondo, Vizcaya; and in 35, Martín Berasategui, with his restaurant in Guipúzcoa. In addition, Jordi Roca, responsible for desserts at Celler de Can Roca, has been chosen as the best pastry chef in the world.
