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.
