50 Best Restaurants In The World For 2014

Share It

50-best-restaurants-in-the-world-announced-headerLeaders in the restaurant industry selected their top 50 "must-go" places. 

What constitutes the "best restaurant?" Sometimes it's a trendy place where you can get a big, juicy cheeseburger and sometimes...it's a quiet cafe where the big salad is to die for. According to this list, the world's top 50 restaurants boast a mastery of the finer foods. See if you've dined at any of these fancy establishments. 

The restaurants on the top 50 list are selected by an elite group of more than 900 internationally recognized restauranteurs and influential people in the restaurant industry. The list shows who shines in the world of fine dining, spanning over the entire world, from Brazil to Yountville (in Napa Valley for food newbies). 

This year, the group's top pick is Noma in Copenhagen. The restaurant is known for its Scandinavian creations like sea urchin toast and cod liver, a far cry from my big, juicy cheeseburger.

 

Noma was dethroned in 2013 by El Celler De Can Roca (number two in 2014), but quickly reclaimed its spot at the top. Our world traveler readers may have been fortunate enough to dine at these fine locations, but for most of us, they're a far off gastronomic dream.
