The Moscow restaurant White Rabbit was named one of the world's top restaurants in new rankings that came out yesterday.
The eatery, led by chef Vladimir Mukhin, came in 23rd on the list and was also named the highest-ranked new entry on the list, Moscow Times reports.
The judges noted the chef's innovative dishes - that combine Russian tradition with global food trends - and noted the restaurant's setting, featuring 360-degree views of central Moscow.
The spanish restaurant El Celler de Can Roca regained its title as the world's best restaurant on Monday, fending off previous winner Noma. The Copenhagen restaurant dropped two places to No. 3, knocking chef-owner Rene Redzepi off the top spot he had held last year and for three previous years at the annual fine dining ceremony held in London's Guildhall.
