The S. Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants were announced yesterday with Denmark’s Noma taking first place for the second year in a row. Chicago’s Alinea is the first US entry at #6 (up 1 from last year). Per Se and Daniel are #10 and #11. The highest new entry is The Ledbury at #34, and David Chang’s Momofuku Ssam Bar fell 14 spots to #40.
I haven’t eaten at any of the top 100, but, you know, something to aspire to.
