Critics Agree: This Is Undoubtedly the Best Restaurant in the World

Pinpointing the absolute best restaurant in the world might seem like a tall order, but that’s exactly what over 1000 of the best food critics set out to determine for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. This year, a familiar restaurant took out the top spot: Osteria Francescana, a restaurant with three Michelin stars in Modena, Italy. It's not the first time Massimo Bottura’s restaurant has topped the list—Osteria Francescana won the coveted award in 2016, and last year it came in second to New York's Eleven Madison Park, which this year slipped to number four.
