Eleven Madison in New York won the number one spot in the world's 50 best restaurant awards. This is the first time since 2004 that a US restaurant has won the top spot.

As reported by Richard Vines/Bloomberg, the winners were announced in a ceremony at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne. The list is decided by a panel of more than 1,000 chefs, food writers and other experts from 26 geographical regions.

When Copenhagen restaurant Noma first won in 2010, 100,000 people tried to book online the following day. And after El Celler de Can Roca’s 2013 victory, its website received 12 million hits. Three extra employees were hired to turn  down requests for tables, and the waiting list grew to one year, according to chef Joan Roca.
