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.

3. Pierre Gagnaire (France)
4. French Laundry (U.S.)

7. Restaurant le Louis XV (Monaco)
8. Per Se (U.S.)
