Here are the world's 50 best restaurants this year

The world's 50 best restaurants have been announced today in Melbourne, Australia.

The top spot went to Eleven Madison Park in New York City.

The restaurant’s owners, Will Guidara and Swiss-born chef Daniel Humm, create their dishes in an art deco building overlooking Madison Park.

According to Bloomberg, it is the first US restaurant to top the list in 13 years.

Last year’s No.1, Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy, claims the No.2 position while retaining its title as The Best Restaurant in Europe.

France, Spain and the US each have six restaurants on the list this year which features nine new restaurants: six making their debut and three returning to the list as re-entries.

The restaurants are chosen by more than 1,000 chefs, food writers and traveling gourmets from around the world.

Here is the full list for 2017:
