Brazilian Restaurant Climbs to Number Seven in World's Best Restaurant List

On April 29th last year, Flavors of Brazil reported in this post that São Paulo's D.O.M. restaurant, helmed by celebrity chef Alex Atala, had been named the 18th best restaurant in the world in the S. Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.

The 2011 awards have just been announced, and D.O.M. has climbed from 18th position to 7th, a jump of 11 places. It has also retained last year's Aqua Panna award as the best restaurant in South America. D.O.M. is the only Brazilian restaurant in the Best 50 ranking., though two additional Brazilian restaurants, Fasano and Mani, were featured in the ancillary Best 51-100 list, coming in at positions 59 and 74 respectively.

Copenhagen, Denmark restaurant Noma was named the world's best for the second year running, and second and third place restaurants were both from Spain.

  1. James,
    OOOoops! Just noticed that you LIVE in Brazil too. Perhaps you don't know where I can buy salt cod in the USA--but if you do I'd REALLY appreciate any ideas you might have!!
