el bulli ousted

Arguably the most discussed list in the food world - the San Pellegrino Top 50 Best Restaurants has just been announced for 2010...and there's a whole lot of movin' and shakin' going on.

Ousted as top dog, El Bulli has dropped to second place, despite this being the last year of operation for the long running Adria run restaurant. Taking it's place as the best restaurant in the world is Denmark's Noma...no surprise according to the word behind the burners and around the wine-stained linen tablecloths throughout the globe.

Also encouraging to see, is a host of new entries in this year's top 50 including Switzerland's Schloss Schauenstein at #30 and the UK's Aqua at #34, beating out Australia's flag bearer Testuya's at # 38. Peter Gilmore's Quay landed at #27.

World, your top 10 are:

1 Noma Denmark
2 El Bulli Spain
3 The Fat Duck UK
4 El Celler de Can Roca Spain
5 Mugaritz Spain
6 Osteria Francescana Italy
7 Alinea USA
8 Daniel USA
9 Arzak Spain
10 Per Se USA
