El Bulli no longer number 1 restaurant, now it’s NOMA

28 04 2010

It was a huge surprise that first place from the S Pellegrino World’s best restaurants went to the Danish eatery NOMA, located in Copenhagen. The winner of the most prestige food award is picked by over 800 restaurateurs, chefs and food writers from all over the world and El Bulli from Spain on years in a row and now was number 2 just for The Fat Duck from the UK. My boyfriend and I are big foodies and were curious to see to how many places in the top we have been too. Let’s say we still have a long way to go. We ate at number 8 Daniel and number 15 Le Bernadin both in NYC. Then number 34 Aqua in Germany and my personal favorite The Librije in Zwolle, the Netherlands ranked 37. Then number 52 Jean Georges and 57 De¬†Karmeliet in Brugge. Another favorite of us Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence ended up at place 87. The chef from the Librije, Jonnie¬†Boer was on TV yesterday and he as very happy with his place 37, I think he deserves even more. On saturday night the restaurant is booked until July 2011. Luckily we always go on a different day!
