Restaurant magazine just unleashed its definitive list of The World's 50 Best Restaurants for 2014. Compiling the opinions/votes of roughly 900 international industry experts (members of The Diners Club World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, who wonder why you're not using their credit card), the mag has maybe the most simplistic voting guidelines of any voting thing, ever: "There is no criteria that a restaurant has to meet. They certainly do not have to sell a certain product. They do not need to have been open a certain number of years and they do not need to have won any other culinary accolades."
So, which of our fair city's restaurants made the top 50 list? Check it out:
No. 4: Eleven Madison Park
No. 21: Le Bernardin
No. 30 : Per Se
No. 40: Daniel
Oh, and in case you were wondering who just missed out on the 50 Best, they have an extended list too. Here's who didn't (but did) make the cut:
No. 64: momofuku ssäm bar
No. 68: NoMad
No. 70: Momofuku Ko
No. 93: Marea
No. 98: Jean Georges
