Where to eat around the world
THE 98 RESTAURANTS
WE’ D TR AVEL FO R
If one of the great perks of our job is having a legitimate excuse to eat our way around the world, the downside is definitely making sure we never waste a meal. Food is so inseparable from experience
and place for us that skipping the ephemeral crudo at I Rizzari in southern Sicily is the equivalent of missing the Acropolis in Athens. So what you’ll find here isn’t your typical “best of” list spotlighting the complicated, the new or the bleeding-edge-for-bleeding-edge’s sake. Our methodology is simple. We asked ourselves to be really honest, like “last meal” honest, about the food we live and fly for, and we canvassed our trusted network of writers, chefs and restaurateurs for the dishes they can’t stop dreaming about thereafter – the ones that transport them, even in places like London and Paris,
where the overabundance of options can be paralysing.
What follows is the tear-it-out lifeline to eating your way around
a good chunk of the world.
