Every year, S. Pellegrino announces the world’s top 50 restaurants. In this year’s rankings, which were just released, the water producer included six restaurants in the U.S. Not so coincidentally, all half-dozen of them — Eleven Madison Park (#5), Per Se (#11), Alinea (#15), Le Bernardin (#19), Daniel (#29), and The French Laundry (#47) — have also earned a spot on GAYOT’s list of the top 40 Restaurants in the U.S.
For each of these notable restaurants, we offer a profile of their chefs as well as a complete restaurant review. For chef Thomas Keller, who helms two of the six top restaurants above, we have a lengthy profile explaining why he is the Best Restaurateur in the U.S. for 2013 in our Annual Restaurant Issue.
Although that issue focuses on U.S. restaurants, GAYOT offers plenty of international restaurant coverage. We have about 500 restaurant reviews each in London and Paris, including The Ledbury (#13 in the world per S. Pellegrino), and L’Arpège (#16). To find the highest rated restaurants in each of the hundreds of markets we cover, simply consult our Toque Tally.
