The highly-anticipated and definitive list of the World's 50 Best Restaurants of 2015 was just revealed Monday night, declaring the very best restaurants on the planet -- from Copenhagen, Denmark to São Paulo, Brazil to our beloved New York City. In fact, three NYC restaurants made the coveted list -- down from four last year (damn) -- and you've probably heard of them... because they're the same:
No. 5: Eleven Madison Park
No. 18: Le Bernardin
No. 40: Per Se
Compared with last year's list, Le Bernardin climbed three spots, but Eleven Madison Park dropped one, and Per Se dropped by a whole 10. That's still pretty great, though. Additionally, five NYC restaurants just missed the top 50 list, but are still honored on the extended 51-100 list:
No. 67: NoMad (up one place)
No. 69: Momofuku Ko (up one place)
No. 80: Daniel (down 40)
No. 90: Estela
No. 94: Masa
Overall, NYC tied with Lima, Peru and Mexico City for having the second-most restaurants on the list, with three each. Paris, however, had the most, with four. As for the world's No. 1 best restaurant? That title goes to El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, Spain. Check out the full list here.
