If you think the World’s 50 Best Restaurants is a definitive guide to the finest places to eat around the planet, then you probably think that the choice for Miss Universe influences world peace.
The list, announced in London overnight, put Rene Redzepi’s Noma in Copenhagen back in the top slot for the fourth time in the last five years. It’s a deserved choice. I ate there in 2012 and the meal was astonishing. Despite being braced against the hype, Redzepi and his team created an experience that pushed my boundaries and made me rethink what it means to dine out. I’d urge anyone who loves food to eat there.
