Despite the name ‘world’s 50 best restaurants’, the organiser actually named the top 100 restaurants in 2015. They released the list for 51 – 100 a week earlier.
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015
The top three is pretty similar when compared to last year. El Celler de Can Roca (from Girona, Catalan, Spain) has retaken the top spot from Noma (from Copenhagen, Denmark) in this year’s 50 best restaurants list. Noma actually dropped two spots to number 3. The runner up is Osteria Francescana from Modena, Italy.
Australian Restaurants in the 50 best restaurants 2015
Once again, Attica from Melbourne is the only restaurant from Australia included in the 50 best restaurants list. Their ranking is steady at 32.
Three more Australian restaurants were included in the top 100 list:
– Quay at 58. Quay is still the only restaurant in the list that we have visited.
– Sepia at 84. In addition to being a debutant on this year’s list. Sepia is also named as the one to watch in 2015. It has certainly been on our list for as long as we can remember!!
– Brae at 87. Brae is a countryside restaurant in Birregurra, Victoria. According to the 2006 census, Birregurra was only inhabited by 688 people!
The list for the top four restaurants in Australia is very similar to the one voted by Australian chefs in Financial Review.
Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015
Earlier in the year theworlds50best.com released a list of Asia’s 50 best restaurants 2015. Gaggan from Bangkok Thailand is number one on the list.
However, on the world’s 50 best restaurants 2015 released yesterday, Narisawa from Tokyo, Japan actually ranked higher than Gaggan. I am actually not sure how they managed to be ranked differently.
