This just in: Noma is now the World’s Best Restaurant. And in the top 50 of this year’s list are two Singapore entries, which are Odette and Burnt Ends, a brand new entry on the list. 

The announcement of restaurants for World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2021 comes with eager anticipation, as last year’s selection — similar to the Michelin-star announcements — was delayed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the state of the industry around the world as a result.

Invited guests had a choice of attending the prestigious ceremony in the Belgian city of Antwerp, Flanders, although many, bound by travel restrictions, chose to view the ceremony virtually via Facebook or Youtube.

Besides the long wait, many are keeping a watchful eye on the list as Mirazur will no longer be eligible to be take top spot, following a new rule that restaurants that have won in previous years can no longer appear on the list. Instead, the French restaurant will be placed in a separate category named The Best of the Best, which a sees a hall-of-fame catalogue of previous ‘number 1’ restaurants that were listed on the World’s 50 Best.
