Rene Redzepi’s Noma ‘2.0’ has been named as the number one restaurant in the world.
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards were held in Antwerp, Flanders, earlier in the week, and saw representatives from nearly all listed restaurants attend the ceremony.
It marks the fifth time the Copenhagen restaurant has topped the list, with the previous iteration of Noma securing the win in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 before a new rule, which sees the number one restaurant move into the Best of the Best hall of fame, was ushered in.
“Noma has arguably been the most influential restaurants of its generation, setting new standards in terms of research and ingredient sourcing, dish development and presentation,” says William Drew, director of content for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.
“It has become one of the most sought-after dining destinations by consumers from all over the world.”
Geranium in Copenhagen snagged the no.2 spot, with Asador Etxebarri in Spain named as no.3 ; Peru’s Central taking out no.4 and Spain’s Disfrutar rounding out the top five.
Australian chef Dave Pynt’s Singapore restaurant Burnt Ends celebrated a huge jump from 59 in 2019 to make its debut in the top 50 at position 34.
Overall, there are 26 countries represented on the list, with eight new restaurants and two returning re-entries.
Hong Kong’s The Chairman received the Highest Climber award, with Asador Etxebarri’s Victor Arguinzoniz named as the winner of the Chefs’ Choice award.
