The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018: Here Are The Winners

Osteria Francescana is the best restaurant in the world (once again)


The results are in –  culinary whizz Bottura’s contemporary Italian restaurant has been awarded  the World’s No. 1 Restaurant once again. First awarded the coveted title in 2016, the Italian eatery has reclaimed its crown.

The results also saw a drop for last year’s victor, Eleven Madison Park. The East Hampton eatery fell to No.4 following a year of much-talked-about hype.

It’s no secret that Massimo is a maestro in the kitchen. Renowned for his lighthearted approach to classic dishes, his fondness for art plays out in his food – the deconstructed dessert ‘Oops I Dropped The Lemon Tart’ being a classic example.
