What's on the Menu at the World's Best Restaurant? Noma in 26 Plates


On Monday, April 30, 2012, restaurant Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark snagged the top spot on the S. Pellegrino list of The World's 50 Best Restaurants for the third year in a row.

So what's the secret to culinary world domination?

I visited Noma on Friday, May 4th, less than one week later, to find out. In twenty-six plates this is what a meal looks like at the world's best restaurant.
