World’s 50 Best Restaurants List is Again Dominated by Europe and Men
Restaurant site Eater has a superb graphic break down of the recently-released World’s 50 Best Restaurant List. The takeaways? Europe still reigns, though its influenced has waned. Eater's chief critic Ryan Sutton also takes issue with how little China and India are represented, not to mention the scant 4 percent of noted restaurants helmed by women.
According to the list, put together by nearly 1000 judges from the world’s finest culinary institutions, Europe is home to 48 percent of the worlds best restaurants—twice as many as any other region around the world. The judges seem to overlook quite a large portion of the international market, including Africa, the Middle East, Japan, China and India. They also almost exclusively award expensive restaurants. Check out the full breakdown, this way.
