    The list of the top 50 restaurants in the world has been revealed at the annual World’s 50 Best awards in Melbourne. According to the list, the very best place to eat on the planet is at Eleven Madison Park, New York, with last year’s number 1, Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy, dropping down to second place. El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, Spain, takes the third spot in the list.

    The Clove Club, in Shoreditch, was London’s top ranked restaurant at number 26, just pipping The Ledbury, in Notting Hill, which is rated just one place lower. Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner also made the top 50 at number 36.

    There was noteworthy success for Lima, Peru, with two restaurants in the top 10, while France, Spain and America all had six restaurants each in the top 50. Cronut creator Dominique Ansel, who recently opened a bakery in Victoria, was named the world’s best pastry chef, and Ana Roš from Slovenia was awarded the Female Chef of the Year prize.
