(April 29, 2014) – Time to enjoy the best food in the world—as long as you’re up for some traveling.

Restaurant Magazine revealed its list of the 50 best restaurants around the world.

The top spot went to Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark. “Mould-breaking Nordic food that takes nature’s bounty to new levels,” the article says. The restaurant rebounded after dropping to the second spot in last year’s list. It’s a perennial contender for best restaurant.

But you don’t have to travel to Denmark for great food. New York City’s Eleven Madison Park finished fourth overall, making it the best finisher among U.S. dining spots. The magazine calls the menu “the antidote to humdrum” and says the restaurant combines “fun and fine dining.”

The ninth spot goes to a restaurant within driving distance for many Hoosiers—Alinea in Chicago. “Modernist techniques and artistry come together to astonishing effect” at the Windy City eatery that opened in 2005. Be prepared to pay, though—dinner there costs upwards of $210.
