World's 50 Best Restaurants


World's 50 Best Restaurants

The very best from around the globe

If you love your nosh, and you've been to every eatery on this list, your work on this planet may well be nearly done. Either way, until someone comes up with a better way to celebrate the fact that we can now spend our evenings seated in front of an exquisitely laid table adorned with silver service, Wedgwood porcelain, Waterford crystal glasses, and groaning with exquisite fare and the finest wines available to humanity, rather than being forced to hunt and rip apart our prey on the savannah of prehistory, this remains the greatest and only list of its kind.
