UK and London climb the culinary charts

Two London restaurants and one in Berkshire were named among the best 50 in the world this week, with a further three UK restaurants making it into the top 100.

The World’s 50 Best Restaurant awards, a prestigious list of the world’s top eating spots compiled by chefs, food critics and industry insiders, saw Danish Noma crowned the number one in the world.

But it was a particularly good year for the UK with six of its restaurants making it into the top 100 – with two of the capital’s restaurants making it into the top 10.

Leading the way was Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner which climbed two places to number five, a  restaurant which less than three month ago was forced to close due to a norovirus outbreak.

Heston’s Berkshire-based three-Michelin-starred The Fat Duck maintained a top 100 spot, but fell 14 places to 47, while The Ledbury in Notting Hill moved up three places to number 10 to become the UK’s second best restaurant.

Despite the list primary focusing on the top 50, the awards also lists the world’s best restaurants up to 100, announced in a second ceremony, which this year included St John in Clerkenwell at 55, Hedone in Chiswick at 63, and The Clove Club in Shoreditch at 87.

Fergus Henderson, chef at St John, also won the lifetime achievement award at the ceremony.

The chef opened the St John Street restaurant in 1994 which is known for its “nose-to-tail-eating” concept, whereby every part of an animal should be used in cooking rather than just prime cuts.
