Noma makes epic return to the top of the culinary pops with its outstanding and innovative culinary experience

Gastronomy giants and cuisine connoisseurs alike were on high alert today as the 2021 World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards were held this afternoon in Antwerp. 

Following a brief hiatus last year due to the pandemic, the prestigious event was a day to remember for the Danish gastronomy sphere.

The awards ceremony revealed that the Danish capital has not just the best restaurant in the world, but the top two.

Nordic cuisine trailblazer Noma came out on tops – the fifth time Rene Redzepi and his crew have taken home first place after last winning in 2014. 

Noma, which came in second place in 2019, also topped the list from 2010-2012.
