The world's best chefs and restaurateurs gathered at London's Guildhall on Monday (28 April) for the World's Best Restaurant Awards 2014, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna.

The evening culminated in Danish restaurant Noma being named the Best Restaurant in the World for the fourth time after stealing the crown back from last year's World's 50 Best Restaurants winner, El Celler de Can Roca. 

However, the World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards are not just about who gets to number one, they are about celebrating the world's top culinary talent and giving international chefs the chance to get together with their peers. 

BigHospitality was reporting live from the night, and you can read our coverage of Noma's win and the 1-50 list here and our country-by-country analysis of the top 50 here
