To choose the best restaurants in the world Not only the menu and the popularity of the restaurant are analyzed, but also other factors such as the service, the location, the variety of the menu, the chefs, the specialties and others. If we are going to mention the best restaurants in the world it is essential to mention the San Pellegrino list.

La San Pellegrino list, sponsored by the brand of San Pellegrino water, is the dream of chefs and restaurateurs of the world as it is in charge of establishing the order of priorities within the best restaurants in the world. The San Pellegrino list 2011 was released this month and compared to the list established for 2010, slight changes can be noted.

The three best restaurants in the world are:

'Noma' (Denmark). Noma's chef is René Redzepi and he has been in charge of putting Noma on the world front line given its innovative menu that is based on Nordic products such as Icelandic salmon, sea urchins and Greenland water. René Redzepi is recognized as the best chef in the world.

El Celler de Can Roca (Spain). Founded in 1986, El Celler de Can Roca It is a restaurant used to being recognized for the originality of its menu. It is recommended to taste the red mullets stuffed in orange sauce.

Mugaritz (Spain). Mugaritz is the Andoni Luis Aduriz's restaurant and it is considered a mandatory visit for culinary lovers.

It is striking that for this edition it has not been taken into account El Bulli, the distinguished restaurant of Ferran Adria that last year had been part of the shortlist of the best restaurants in the world, however, one of the rules in the voting that the restaurants included in the list guarantee its continuity in the following months and it has been made public that El Bulli it will close in July to give rise to a process of renewal and transformation; it is logical that it was not one of the top three.

Between the ups and downs in the San Pellegrino list 2011, we find that The Fat Duck has dropped to fifth place and that Osteria Francescana, which in the last edition was located in sixth place has now risen to fourth place.

The sixth place of the brand new classification is occupied by Align, from Chicago; while the Brazilian DOM of chef Alex Atala it climbed 11 places on the list and reached seventh place. The top ten list is completed by Arzak, from Spanish Juan Mari Arzak; the French Le Chateaubriand, which improved two positions; and the New Yorker Per Se, who was one of the few who was able to maintain his position.
