The S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2009.


I would love to be a judge at this competition.

For the fourth year in a row Ferran Adrià has topped a worldwide poll of 806 chefs, critics and other industry experts, whilst Heston Blumenthal‘s The Fat Duck retains second place. Below these perennial favourites however it’s all change in the eighth annual listing of The S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

This site makes me want to splurge on some fancy food.

    I’m guessing the judges avoided the health scare at The Fat Duck!

    Restaurants range from inexpensive and informal lunching or dining places catering to people working nearby, with simple food served in simple settings at low prices, to expensive establishments serving refined food and fine wines in a formal setting. In the former case, customers usually wear casual clothing. In the latter case, depending on culture and local traditions, customers might wear semi-casual, semi-formal, or formal wear. Typically, customers sit at tables, their orders are taken by a waiter, who brings the food when it is ready, and the customers pay the bill before leaving.”**^

    Bye for now
