Restaurant Magazine has chosen its 50 best
restaurants in the world. Kind of interesting when you think about it, since a list like this would have been
America or Europe-only focused just ten years ago, you know. A sign of globalization, global travel, all that. Pretty
cool that two of them are New York restaurant…even if I’ve never been to Per Se. Maybe it’s time to go.
Here’s the top ten.
1. The Fat Duck — Best in Europe
Bray, Berks, England
2. El Bulli — Chef’s Choice
3. The French Laundry — Best in Americas
4. Tetsuya’s — Best in Australasia
5. Gordon Ramsay
6. Pierre Gagnaire
7. Per Se — Highest New Entry
8. Tom Aikens
9. Jean Georges
10. St John
