Top 10 Restaurants In World 2016

Think Italian cooking is trending? Osteria Francescana — whose peculiar dishes like “five phases of Parmigiano Reggiano,” “eel swimming up the Po waterway,” and “tribute to Thelonius Monk” have made gourmet specialist Massimo Bottura’s little setting in Modena one of Italy’s hardest tables — has surprisingly earned the top spot on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. The yearly rankings, which have been scrutinized for their absence of female-run eateries, their inclination to support costly European-style tasting menus, and their merciful state of mind toward judges tolerating free dinners, were declared at a function in New York tonight.

The awards are independently adjudicated by the global consulting firm Deloitte. The 1,500 or so judges come from a pool equally made up of food writers, chefs and restaurateurs, and well-traveled gastronomes. Each judge casts seven votes, three of which must apply toward restaurants outside of her home region. Voters must have dined at a restaurant within the past 18 months. And while the voters are required to remain anonymous, they face no requirement to actually pay for their meals. This stands in contrast to the professional conduct of most critics, including Michelin inspectors, who are not permitted to accept freebies in an effort to remain independent.
