S. Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants 2010

New, 7 comments

Today S. Pellegrino releases their fairly well-regarded annual list of the "World's 50 Best Restaurants." In sort of an upset, the number one spot went to René Redzepi's Noma in Copenhagen, ousting El Bulli after four consecutive years at the top of the rankings.

El Bulli is now #2, the Fat Duck is #3, Alinea is #7, Daniel is #8, and Per Se is #10. Via Twitter and tipsters, here are the top ten (and we'll have the whole list later today).
