AT THE TOP

El Celler de Can Roca

El Celler de Can Roca, the best restaurant in the world in 2015.

Spanish cuisine is still the highest ranked with 7 restaurants at the Top 50 in the world by English magazine “Restaurant” that classifies each year in the opinion of chefs, restaurateurs, gourmands and food critics all the restaurants in the world. This year Spain is followed in this classification by US with 6 establishments in the top 50 and France 5. The Spanish cuisine has led more than half the editions of this classification since it was conceived in 2002 (5 times Bulli and El Celler de Can Roca 2 times).

Next to El Celler de Can Roca *, in the first place, still stands in sixth place Mugaritz *, under the direction of Andoni Luis Aduriz, after ten years among the top ten since its entry in the list in 2006, well being six consecutive years among the top five restaurants in the world. It is without doubt one of the Spaniards to reach the top of the list in the following years candidates.

The Victor Arguinzoniz run restaurant, Asador Etxebarri, has climbed from position 34 to 13. Another eternal restaurant among the top 50, such as Arzak, goes down from 8 to 17. Continues rising in this classification the bet Albert Adrià and his “Tickets* restaurant passing from 57 to 42nd.

In the second section of the list (51-100) two other restaurants emerge with force  and are two big bets to keep rising up on this list, from Madrid DiverXO* (by David Muñoz) climbing 94 to 59 and the Basque Nerua* (by Josean Martinez Alija at the Guggenheim in Bilbao) entering the 68th.

* These restaurants are currently customers of “País de Quercus”.
