New York City is a true culinary melting pot. We live in a vibrant stew of differing tastes, cultures and gastronomic know-how, so it’s no surprise that our fair city was heavily represented in Restaurant Magazine’s list of the 50 best restaurants around the world.
Published in collaboration with Restaurant Magazine, S. Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, the prestigious list of eateries is determined by a jury of 972 chefs, critics, and food-world luminaries. Each of the jurors places votes for the seven best restaurants that they’ve dined at in the past 18 months.
Below are the four New York restaurants that made the exclusive cut.
