    Four New York City eateries made a list of the world's 50 best restaurants, and one was ranked as the best in the U.S.

    Daniel Humm's Eleven Madison Park placed fourth on Restaurant magazine's list, and it was the highest-ranking American restaurant. The top three listings were all European establishments.

    Rene Redzepi's Danish restaurant, Noma, reclaimed the title of world's top restaurant.

    Noma — which has a meticulous focus on simple, indigenous ingredients like snails, moss and cod liver — held the No. 1 spot on the magazine's annual ranking for three years before being bested in 2013 by avant-garde eatery El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, Spain. During a ceremony Monday in London, Noma reclaimed the top spot while El Celler fell to No. 2.

    Seven U.S. restaurants made the list, four of them in New York City. Eleven Madison Park rose one spot from fifth place last year.

    Eric Ripert's seafood-focused Le Bernardin fell from 19th to 21st, while Daniel Boulud's Daniel in New York slipped from 29th to 40th.

    Thomas Keller's Per Se fell from 11th to 30th.
