There are very few industries as innovative yet divisive as the hospitality industry, at the high end, no two restaurants are truly the same. From ultra luxury to exquisite design and some traditional cultural thrown into the mix, these are the top four restaurants in the world right now.
New Nordic cuisine is the staple at Noma, although new Nordic seems a bit inappropriate for this, as the specialized dishes cater more to what is available than a standard menu. Noma sticks to local to never before seen degrees, with a highly specialized team scouring the local land to find what is available and then creating a menu around what they have found.
Noma is not just about serving amazing food, but creating new food. The fermentation kitchen alone could be mistaken for a laboratory where new flavours and combinations are discovered. If you ever intend to spend some time in Denmark, don’t forget to subscribe to Nomas newsletter to reserve a spot for this incredible experience.
When fine and exclusive dinning is the topic, one does not often think of grilling on a wood fire. While it may not be the most elegant method of cooking food, it can produce the most astounding results when preformed with the level of mastery possessed by the founder of Asador Etxenarri, Victor Arguinzoniz.
Here all the food is grilled over the coals of specially selected woods to best match the flavour profiles of the dish, if you are a fan of grilled and smokey dishes, there is no better restaurant in the world than Asador Etxebarri. Located in Spanish Basque Country not only is the food at the very top of the class, but the scenery is enough reason to stop by Asador Etxenarri too.
