See here the top 1-50. And I am proud to note that I have tried by now 4 places in the 2011 world top 12, namely:
- Noma (1): been there twice already, see here impressions (and some pictures) from the first time, the second was a lunch in October last year– still have to get hold of those pictures online somewhere. Vale?
- Alinea (6): been there exactly a month ago, details yet to come.
- Per Se (10): visited for lunch during a brief but intense visit to NYC in November 2010, promised I would write impressions soon. I liked it more than Alinea, for starters…
- Les Créations de Narisawa (12): end 2009, there is a whole saga behind this. This is also the one place that I believe still has a lot of growing chances. Can only go up in the world rankings, looking forward to seeing that materialize.
Remark as well that Noma, Alinea and Narisawa are respectively the 2011 top restaurants on the three continents I know (to a little extent) so far.
