Danish Restaurant Named World's Best

Noma, the restaurant in Copenhagen whose chef Rene Redzepi forages for ingredients, was last night named the world's best for the second year straight.

"The World's 50 Best is important because it's a global tally and there aren't many of those, " Boulud said yesterday in an interview at his London venue, Bar Boulud. "People compare it to the Michelin guid, but they are completely different and we need them both. Also, this event brings together chefs from around the world. It's almost creating a new family."
