World’s 20 Best Restaurants


I haven’t eaten at any of the world’s top 20 restaurants, nor do I plan to in the near future (as I’m sure they’re all expensive), but it’s a really cool look at what Restaurant Magazine has dubbed the top 20 restaurants in the world.

According to Restaurant magazine, El Bulli, Ferran Adria’s iconic restaurant in northern Spain tops the list, upsetting last year’s winner, the U.K.’s Fat Duck, now number two, where El Bulli was last year. Both restaurants specialize in experimental cuisine. The top U.S. restaurant is French Laundry at number four.

2. The Fat Duck (U.K.)
3. Pierre Gagnaire (France)
4. French Laundry (U.S.)
5. Tetsuya’s (Australia)
6. Bras (France)
7. Restaurant le Louis XV (Monaco)
8. Per Se (U.S.)
9. Restaurant Arzak (Spain)
10. Mugaritz (Spain)
11. Can Fabes (Spain)
12. Nobu (U.K.)
13. Gambero Rosso (Italy)

Blue glowing water



Here’s a cool twist to the night light idea. If you’re groggy and looking for a glass of water but don’t want to be shocked by turning on all of your kitchen lights, just grab a glass and turn on your faucet. The Blue LED faucet light attaches to any faucet and emits an eerie (but cool) blue glow when the faucet is turned on.

Available at ThinkGeek for $15.
