A list of the World's top 50 restaurants has been released. While I am sure the 50 places on the list must be great, I have to wonder who is deciding this list. Notice the absence of any real Asian or African or Middle Eastern restaurants. Even in their 50-100 list, there is one entry from Dubai, which interestingly has a Western-styled name.
So perhaps if you want western-styled food, use this list. If you want something more ethnic and authentic, then I suggest you look elsewhere.
