If you’re a real foodie who loves to experience the best restaurants out there, listen up. The annual list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants has just been released, and you don’t actually have to leave the country to eat at the absolute best.
Taking the top spot this year is Eleven Madison Park in New York City, marking the fist time a non-European restaurant earned the distinguished honor since the early years of the list. Of course a meal there doesn’t come cheap. The restaurant, where Mariah Carey got engaged to James Packer, offers only an 11-course tasting menu for "just" $295 a person.
And Eleven Madison Park isn't the only New York restaurant to make the Top 50, with Blue Hill at Stone Barns in upstate New York, and Le Bernardin and Cosme in Manhattan also making the list. Other U.S. restaurants making the Top 50 include Alinea, in Chicago and Saison in San Francisco.
