Default 2011 World's 50 Best Restaurants announced today

Wow! What a lineup! I haven't been fortunate enough to eat at any of them. Haw anyone ? Maybe even for drinks?

I'm surprised that French Laundry isn't on the list - but Per Se is. Anyone surprised by anything else?

Well the US sucked a big goose egg on that list!

We need to pool our money, buy some property, and start "The NCT Tavern" in the central US. We'll all take turns going out to run the place a week at a time and will then top that list!

Not a single one. Probably couldn't afford it anyway (I say defensively).

I suppose Red Gravy is too new to have been reviewed.

Auberge de I'ill is usually is on it - no more. We ate there back in 91 and it was wonderful.
There was a 6 month wait for reservations.

Had lunch at Daniel in 2009. Phenomenal food

Eleven Madison Park one of Danny Meyers, lunch there too, our habit when we are in NY. Easier to get in.

I've eaten in a few mostly France and England. Now if those are in the 50 best I will stay in the US. Sorry folks the French and English are highly over rated in these polls in my opinion. I have also eaten in 3 others though all to be honest was years ago and the top rated one in Italy was excellent as was 1 listed in NYC. I have also eaten in one in Brazil and it was good however none of these based on when I ate their would be in the top 50. But then I wonder who tasted the food, service, price etc and made the decision on which is the top 50 since it is subjective to his/her tastes which may or may not match mine.
