World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2013

SA does not have any restaurants in the top 50, but on the extended top 100 list we have the same 2 that we had last year, Tasting Room (up from 57 to 53) and Test Kitchen (up from 74 to 61).

A nice additional accolade this year is that Test Kitchen was voted The One To Watch this year.

The big news is that Noma has been knocked from the top spot after several years. Spain now holds the top spot again and in fact holds 3 of the top 10 spots.

Osteria Francescana moves up to number 3, which is particulary of interest to us because we were honored to enjoy a presentation by Massimo Bottura at the Eat Out Conference last year.

Also nice to see St John in London on the list as I ate there late last year.
