For a second year in a row, Danish restaurant Noma in Copenhagen was crowned the world’s best restaurant.

The S. Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants, produced by Britain’s Restaurant Magazine, were unveiled in London after voting by a panel of more than 800 chefs, restaurateurs, journalists and food experts who rated Noma’s leadership of a “new guard” of global cuisine.

“We feel pretty good about it, said Noma’s 33-year-old chef, Rene Redzepi. “I think now we are as successful as we can be. Now we are working for the momentum of our region. It will be good for the other great chefs that are yet to be discovered. I think that will be the big impact.”

“We heartily congratulate Rene Redzepi for the difficult task of maintaining his position as the number one restaurant on our list, which underscores his commitment to redefining Nordic cuisine,” Restaurant magazine Editor William Drew said in a statement with the winning results for the 10th year of the awards.
