Top 100 restaurants in the world


Times Online ranks the world’s top 100 restaurants.  No surprise that Ferran Adria’s El Bulli in Spain came out on top.  If you want to get an idea of why El Bulli, you should go to your local bookstore and check out A Day at El Bulli. 

With four restaurants in the top 10 (and a plethora of others in the top 100), should we begin to consider Spain the world’s culinary destination? 

Per Se (NYC) and Alinea (Chicago) are the only two American entries in the top 10. Other American restaurants that made the cut include: The French Laundry (Napa), Le Bernardin (NYC), Jean Georges (NYC), Masa (NYC), Momofuku Ssam Bar (NYC), Daniel (NYC), Chez Panisse (Berkeley), Babbo (NYC), Manresa (Santa Cruz), and Del Posto (NYC).

Basically lots of NYC restaurants.  Obvsiously solidify its reputation as America’s high-end food capital.  I do think it’s unfortunate that so many restaurants from New York are on there.  C’mon America, it’s time to step up your food game. 

My only complaint with the article is why just a list?
