For René Redzepi, champion of Nordic cuisine and forager par excellence, this year's list of the 50 best restaurants makes for very pleasing reading indeed: Noma, in Copenhagen, has been crowned the world's best place to eat for the third year in a row.
According to La Liste, a group convened by the France’s Foreign Minister and supported by the country’s tourism board, the top restaurant in the world is the Restaurant de l’Hôtel de Ville in Crissier, Switzerland. New York City’s Per Se has grabbed the number two spot, according to the new ranking. Tokyo’s Kyo Aji comes in third.
The food: Arzak’s extensive offering includes multiple tasting menus and an à la carte, with specialties such as the Red Space Egg with a skin of red peppers, pig trotters and mushrooms, and seabass served on top of a tablet computer with moving images of the sea.
