Top 50 Restaurants in the World (2006)

Restaurant magazine produces an annual list of the 50 best restaurants in the world based on a poll of international chefs and critics. In 2006 El Bulli in (Spain) pushed the 2005 winner The Fat Duck down to second place. The two top restaurants are forerunners of molecular gastronomy. Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California is listed as the #20.

Unfortunately, there is not any Greek restaurant in the list (nor was there one in the 2004 list). So, is the good Greek food only cooked in private houses? Or do we have a case similar to the Greek Universities not making it to the top 200 list of Universities world-wide?


  1. Announcing new initiative:

    Greek Cuisine Reform !

    I see a few New York restaurants on the list but I never go there. Too expensive.

    My favorites:

    The top one is Turkish by the way ...

  2. Jolly good idea! After all, university professors are notorious for their "cooking" capacity. Nice to expand on the reccomended restaurants in NY too.
