On Monday, 26 April, the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards 2010 were unveiled at London’s Guildhall. The new number one restaurant is Noma from Denmark. For the previous four years, this position was held by Spanish El Bulli, which dropped down to the second spot this year. The Fat Duck, previously number two, was pushed down to third place.

42 Restaurants features eight restaurants in the Top 50 positions this year. These are La Colombe and Le Quartier Francais (South Africa), St John and Hibiscus (UK), Aqua and Die Schwarzwaldstube (Germany), Oaxen Krog (Sweden) and Biko (Mexico). Four more are featured in the Top 100: The River Café, Le Gavroche and Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester (UK) and Tantris (Germany). Our congratulations to these restaurants!

La Colombe, our highest ranking restaurant on the S.Pellegrino List, jumped 26 places to number 12. Since La Colombe is located in 42 Restaurants’ own hometown, Cape Town, we are particularly proud. As a special treat, we are making their Fricasse of Langoustine and Quail recipe available here. Enjoy!
