The WORLD’S 50 BEST RESTAURANTS have been announced for 2016 and its a game of musical chairs with many of last year’s winners changing positions on the list. It appears that South America is popping off as a culinary hotspot with several high profile entries. As for Europe, I admit I was not shocked that Dinner by Heston Blumenthal dropped to No. 45, I never understood its rave reviews in years past. I’m most excited about Spain’s top tables particularly Asador Etxebarri in Axpe a tiny fishing village northwest of Bilbao. And congratulations to all the American chefs making the list, all deservedly so, but good luck foodies securing reservations now!
