El Bulli Dethroned
Stands at # 2.
Noma, in Copenhagen, Denmark is now numero uno.
I doubt it. It is closing at the end of 2011, and after a few years break Adria plans to open a culinary institute and will not re-open El Bulli in the same form it has been in the past.
A meal at El Bulli was €230 last year (wine extra). It is a set menu for lunch or dinner, it only opens for lunch or dinner each day, not both, and it only opens for six months each year.
Fully booked for 2010, reservations for 2011 probably open in Jan next year.
