Danish restaurant Noma nominated ‘Best Restaurant in the World’

Noma Restaurant, DenmarkThe British publication Restaurant Magazine releases a list of the best restaurants in the world annually and over recent years, the Danish restaurant Noma has steadily risen within the rankings. However, earlier this week, Noma was officially nominated as the ‘Best Restaurant in the World’ by the magazine.

The Spanish restaurant elBulli, which is located not far from Barcelona, dropped into second place after holding on to the top spot for the past three years. Ferran Adria, a caterer for elBulli, announced recently that the restaurant will be closing for two years from 2012. The Fat Duck in Berkshire, England trailed just behind in third place.

Noma first appeared on the list in 2006 in 33rd position and throughout the years has steadily moved its way up the top 50 list. In 2007, Noma reached 15th place, a year later 10th place and last year jumped up into third place.

Noma is ideally located on Strandgade 89, Copenhagen, in a house called Nord Atlantis which also accommodates the embassies for Iceland, Greenland, Faroe Islands and Norway. Noma is also the only Danish restaurant that holds two Michelin stars. Chef René Redzepi uses only Scandinavian produce to create beautiful dishes such as lamb, musk ox, berries, herbs, and seafood all prepared without heavy sauces or creams.

Guests wanting to book a table should expect a 2-3 month waiting list. Those wishing to book a hotel near to Noma can book through www.hotelsincopenhagen.dk
