An employee of 'El Celler de Can Roca' walks past various items signed by famous customers, including a jersey of football player Lionel Messi, in the restaurant's kitchen in Girona on April 30, 2013. Spain's El Celler de Can Roca seized the title of the world's best restaurant from Denmark's Noma on April 29, one month after dozens of people came down with a bout of food poisoning from the Copenhagen eatery. The restaurant in Girona, run by three brothers and known for its dishes based on perfumes, had spent two years as runner-up on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list compiled for a 12th year by more than 900 international experts for Britain's Restaurant magazine.
