The Roca brothers and their El Celler De Can Roca restaurant in Girona (Spain) dropped down at the second place, while Massimo Bottura from the Osteria Francescana restaurant in Italy mantained the third position.

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List for 2014 featured also the Brazilian chef Helena Rizzo as The Veuve Clicquot World’s Best Female Chef. UK's chef Fergus Henderson received the Lifetime Achievement Award 2014 .
The announcement of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, an event sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, has become one of the most highly anticipated moments of the culinary calendar with the best chefs in the world all in attendance to hear exactly which restaurant will be at the top.

Last year saw the Spanish El Celler de Can Roca of the Roca Brothers took the title as the World’s Best Restaurant knocking the three time winner Noma (N.2) from the top spot. Osteria Francescana was N.3.

WORLD'S 50 BEST RESTAURANTS
Based on a number of elements, the World's 50 Best list is compiled each year to determine which restaurant of the Best Chefs in the World can be considered among the World’s 50 Best Restaurants.
How it works: The lists of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants are organised and compiled by William Reed Media. The list is created from The Diners Club® World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, an influential group of over 900 international leaders in the restaurant industry, each selected for their expert opinion of the international restaurant scene.

 

The Academy comprises 26 separate regions around the world. Each region has its own panel of 36 members including a chairperson to head it up. The panel is made up of food critics, chefs, restaurateurs and highly regarded ‘foodies’ each of whom has seven votes. Of the seven votes, at least three of which must be used to recognise restaurants outside of their region. At least 10 panellists from each region change each year. The results are published online as soon as they have been announced to the assembled chefs and academy members in February in Singapore for Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards and in London in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards. Every restaurant in the world is eligible.
