    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.

    What makes Per Se so much better than TFL?

    Manresa does not belong on that list.
