Have you ever wondered what the best restaurant in the world is? Below is a review of the Top Ten Best Restaurants in the World. As a bonus there is a recommendation on where to stay if you should decide to take an adventure and try them out for yourself. The survey was done by Restaurant Magazine, with the winners chosen by an international panel of more than 600 impossible-to-please restaurateurs, food critics, chefs, and industry experts. For the complete story and a list of the world’s Top 50 restaurants check out the complete article at worldpress.com
An interesting side note: Restaurant Magazine (the magazine that conducted the study) is a UK based publication, and London happened to have 11 of the worlds top 50 restaurants while Paris the city with the second most restaurants received only 6 awards. I can’t help but think that they may be a bit biased? However, in their defense the United States-based Gourmet Magazine recently declaring London ?The best place to eat on the planet,? maybe London’s days of bangers and mash are over?
