Where would we possibly end up if there was no food? Food is what allows us to live, and almost everybody in the world eats to live. But what about the people who live to eat? Its not strange at all. The world is filled with different kinds of people and the connoisseurs of food are surely quite interesting people, and when they pick restaurants that are interesting, it is quite obvious that those restaurants are actually interesting.

So, here is a list of the top 10 most famous restaurants of the world
10. The Ledbury, London, England
Among the top ten restaurants, The Ledbury is probably the most classical, where its chef, Australian-born Brett Graham, is more interested in pleasure than sorcery. The dishes served in this London restaurant may not be as visually salient as in other places, but their flavors are deep and layered. The well-known dishes of this restaurant are buffalo milk curd, spread creamily onto crisp toasts that are topped with Iberico ham and served with a rich onion broth.
9. Alinea, Chicago, Illinois
Grant Achatz did a brief stint at Ferran Adrià’s elBulli, and ever since has been out avant-garde what the most avant-garde restaurant in the world was once. The 18-or-so-course tasting menu carries titles like “Scallop Acting Like Agedashi Tofu” and the tableware — some of it lovely, some of it looking like it was lifted from the spike-and-pincer collection of the Spanish Inquisition— is tailor-made for each course.
8. Arzak, San Sebastian, Spain
Juan Mari Arzak is one of the great geniuses of Spanish gastronomy, among the first to bring modern techniques and flavors to bear on regional cuisine — in his case, that of his native Basque Country. The kitchen of his restaurant, which is housed in a quaint-looking building but is surprisingly sleek inside, is now run largely by his daughter Elena.
7. D.O.M. Saõ Paulo, Brazil
This restaurant is known for being so refined in taste and flavour. The delicacy of signature dishes, like a pappardelle made from hearts of palm or a ceviche crafted of indigenous flavors, belies the wallop of their unusual flavors — and has helped Brazilians discover the bounty of their native.
6. Mugaritz, Errenteria, Spain
Andoni Luis Aduriz is the Aristotle of contemporary cuisine, a philosopher-king tucked away in the rolling hills of the Basque Country, about 20 minutes drive from San Sebastian. Cerebral, technically accomplished dishes like the Bloody Mary tomato (which looks and feels like a fresh tomato, but tastes of the cocktail), or his famous potato stones (whose river rock appearance gives the diner the uncomfortable sensation of being about to break her teeth), he manages to consistently surprise and delight his customers, all while maintaining a deep, almost pantheistic reverence for the nature around him. This is one of the world’s most famous restaurants 2017.
5. Dinner. London, England
Heston Blumenthal took his fascination with English culinary history and turned it into something unexpectedly interesting for the rest of us. At the fashionable Dinner, located at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in London and overseen by chef Ashley Palmer-Watts, traditional (if quirkily named) dishes like Salamugundy and meat fruit are transformed into modern-day marvels (the latter into a light but rich chicken liver parfait, made up to look exactly like a mandarin orange) Is it indeed the U.K.’s best restaurant.
4. Eleven Madison Park, New York, USA
In this hushed yet theatrical dining room, Swiss-born chef Daniel Humm takes the whole farm-to-table movement, imbues it with a bit of French savoir-faire, and, like an alchemist, comes out with the quintessential New York restaurant. Indeed, the sense of place here comes not just from the locally grown and produced ingredients, but from Humm’s knowing nod to New York’s culinary culture.
3. Osteria Francescana, Modena, Italy
Behind a stately exterior, the world’s most emotive chef, Massimo Bottura, cooks flights of fantasy and memory. The first sign that this is not your ordinary upscale Italian restaurant comes from the abstract contemporary paintings on the wall, but the art continues on the plate.
2. Celler de Can Roca, Girona, Spain
Celler de Can Roca is run by three brothers — head chef Joan, sommelier Josep, and pastry chef Jordi — who came by their trade honestly: they learned it from their parents. But it’s hard to imagine anything further from your average mom and pop cooking. In what may very well be the most beautiful dining room in Europe, a Roca meal dazzles with its wizardry .
1. Noma, Copenhagen, Denmark
After losing the top ranking in 2013 (it had held the No. spot for the three previous years), Noma is firing on all cylinders these days. Located in an old whaling warehouse, the restaurant is the birthplace of “new Nordic” cuisine, which relies solely on ingredients available in region. But today, the restaurant is pushing far beyond its early days of foraged sea buckthorn and reindeer lichen. Dinner these days might start with a whole kohlrabi, filled with its fermented juice and bored with a straw, so that it looks and tastes like a coconut drink. Noma continues to offer what may well be the most engaged—and engaging—service in the world.
So, here was the list of the best restaurants of the world and visiting any of them would be a privilege to a person who likes food.
