Step 3: Have great restaurants fall over themselves to win a spot

RexTalionis: Ah, the Daily Fail at work:

Headline: U.S. lands only ONE restaurant in the 'World's 50 Best' list

Then, one line down from the headline:
Eleven Madison Park in Manhattan was ranked No. 5
Other U.S. restuarants on the list were Alinea (15) of Chicago, Le Bernardin (19) of New York, Daniel (29) of New York and The French Laundry (47) in Yountville, Ca.

How can the U.S. land only ONE restaurant in the World's 50 Best list if you listed 4 other restaurants in the subheading?

/Also, "restuarants"?


It was only one restaurant in the top 10.

I don't really buy into this top ranking stuff anyway. I'm sure the food is good but didn't Noma poison a bunch of people in the past year? And it's still #2? Oh and 8 of the top 10 are European restaurants.

I'm sure it's a great way to generate clicks by creating a slideshow on the internet though.

Here's my top 10 list, for what it's worth:

1) Your favorite local steak house
2) Indian buffets, doesn't really matter which
3) Take-out Chinese
4) Five Guys w/cajun fries
5) A sushi joint with buy 1 get 1 free
6) A bar with lots of beer on tap
7) A Jimmy John's after binge drinking
8) Ben and Jerry's ice cream
9) Any Italian restaurant run by Sicilians
10) A local non-chain pizza place

the mail is a deeply jingoistic paper. the headline is supposed to be a dig at america, because we're so great - yet we have only ONE restaurant in the top fifty. it turns out, of course, that the headline is bullshiat, but that doesn't matter; it's done its job by making the heart of an aging tory's heart beat a little stronger in his chest.

If "best restaurants in the world" mean "places with the most expensive plates with least amount of food on them", then I will gladly take staying at home and grilling some steaks while getting shiatfaced off of tequila.

Fail.  Everyone knows that the Free Market is always right, and with billions and billions served, the Free Market has determined that McDonald's is the best restaurant in the world.

The best restaurant in the world is the one you enjoy regularly.

Got a couple around Atlanta, you just know the pizza is going to be good when you hear a thick Brooklyn accent coming out of the kitchen screaming "Did you touch my oven, don't ever farking touch my oven again."

I have eaten at none of these. And considering the influx into the great kitchens of chemicals and glorified boil in a bag, I have no desire to.

There is only so many closed minded conservative dickheads in the UK that use the Internet. To make money the Fail has reached out to the millions of closed minded conservative dickheads in America.

/ the daily fail was set up at the beginning of the nineteenth century to be pro military, pro empire and anti foreigner. Still pumping out the same formula.

This. It's not in the top 50 if nobody but the very rich can afford to eat there. They might as well have listed the top 50 restaurants on other planets.

Holy shiat, that was nearly perfect. And I'm saying near because of minor differences in opinion.

The Jimmy John's one was perfection

I worked at a world rated on mountain ski restaurant one season a couple years ago as a prep cook... and all I can really say about the experience is that it really convinced me I don't want to work in a restaurant.

Still, the food was pretty good. No way I could afford it on my salary though.

I like good food but I just don't see how you could possibly make food that is so significantly better than a really nice local place. I completely get the whole foodie thing. You want new and exciting experiences and hey if that's your thing go for it but don't pretend that the local places aren't doing a good job either.

I mean if the food is as superior as these people pretend it is you would expect people to be having seizures or orgasms while eating it wouldn't you?

I've never taken these too seriously.  They have yet to ever include a single restaurant from the south in them, same for the Michellin stars.  Its absurd to think that there isn't world-class cuisine in places like Dallas or Houston.

2013-04-30 10:41:33 AM  
Pish, the restaurants that I dine at are so upscale even the author of tfa hasn't even heard of them or could even get in.  I am talking about places that don't even have a name, that can only be found if you know a guy who knows the owner.  Places that don't allow condiments at all because the chef is more of an artist who sees it as an insult against his entire family for you to ask for salt or ketchup.

Compared to where I eat, these restaurants in tfa might as well have playgrounds out front.
