For only the second time in its 15-year history, the World Best Restaurant Awards has named a restaurant outside of Europe as the best in the world: New York’s Eleven Madison Park.
The American restaurant toppled Italy’s Osteria Francescana, which came in second after winning the title for the first time last year. Spanish restaurant El Celler de Can Roca came in third.
Decided by a panel of more than 1,000 chefs, food writers and other experts from 26 geographical regions, the winners were announced in a ceremony at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne.
