(WTNH)– Start making dinner reservations because the list of the world’s 50 best restaurants has been released and some are nearby.

According to CNN, the prestigious 2015 World’s 50 Best Restaurant awards were held Monday, June 1st in London. While a few restaurants in America made the list, the top honors went to El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, Spain.

Italy, a place known for their food, had Modena’s Osteria Francescana place second. And last year’s winner, Noma in Copenhagen, took third place.

But if you aren’t willing to travel that far to dine out, New York City’s Eleven Madison Park came in impressively at number 5.

That wasn’t the only nearby restaurant “food Oscar” worthy. There is also Le Bernardin and Per Se in New York City and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Tarrytown, New York, which all made the list.
