El Celler de Can Roca best restaurant in the world. Girona, Spain.

The 3-starred, newly-crowned World's Best restaurant.  Be warned, this place booked out a year in advance for dinner even before they were elevated from #2 to #1.  It will be virtually impossible to secure a reservation here in the near future.  I made reservations 6 months ahead of time, and was able to get a table for lunch.
