2012 50 Best Restaurants in the World List

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
Comes out tomorrow... any predictions?

I'm curious if Next makes the list - and how they treat Next/Alinea (I felt like they started ignoring French Laundry because they didn't want Per Se and French Laundry both very close to each other on the list).

The less attention that's paid to it, the better.

Meh - I know these things are arbitrary and useless.. but they make for a good discussion starter.

It's a lot like the James Beard Awards. Pretty meaningless, but still interesting to see.

1 Noma
2 El Celler de Can Roca
3 Mugaritz San Sebastian
4 D.O.M.
5 Osteria Francescana
6 Per Se
7 Alinea
8 Arzak
9 Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
10 Eleven Madison Park
21 Oud Sluis
33 De Librije

So it was leaked apparently.Yea. None of the top 10 restaurants in the world are in either France or Japan. Or the British press is just looking to claim that they found the next hot thing. Wonder which one is more likely.

The list seems right. 18-16 (or something) all French/Parisian restaurants...

It is right. The Oscars keep their screts better.
