After releasing the 51-100 World’s Best Restaurants last week (and thus letting some chefs know their restaurants had slipped out of the top 50), S. Pellegrino announced its annual rankings of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. A decidedly international list, only one American restaurant cracked the top 10 – Eleven Madison Park (No. 5).
Other winners of note on OpenTable include Dinner By Heston Blumenthal in London (No. 7), Pujol in Mexico City (No. 16), Le Bernardin in New York (No. 18), The Ledbury in London (No. 20), Aqua at The Ritz Carlton in Wolfsburg, Germany (No. 33), Quintonil in Mexico City, Per Se in New York (No. 40), Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, New York (No. 49), and The French Laundry in Yountville, California (No. 50).
