Given the task of coming up with ten international restaurants so very tasty that they warrant a plane ride on their own sounds like a great assignment. Of course, to land such a great assignment, you have to be a rather lofty food critic like R. W. Apple Jr. who wrote regularly for the New York Times until passing away earlier this month.
His piece, which came out a day after he died, whisks the reader around the globe to fantastic eateries in France, London, Italy, San Sebastian, Brussels, and more. The selection is truly spectacular and while perhaps not worth a plane ticket on their own, each is certainly worth an overland detour if you happen to be in the region.
And yes, the rich folks can fly in if they want.
