Restaurants to watch out for according to the World's 50 Best Restaurants
Tuesday 19 April 2011
In addition to crowning the best of the best at the S. Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards last night, the evening also recognized the meteoric rise of a Swedish restaurant as The One to Watch; a London restaurant for parachuting into the list for the first time; and an Italian chef who got the nod of his industry colleagues.
Within just two years of opening their Stockholm restaurant Frantzén/Lindeberg, owners Bjorn Frantzén and Daniel Lindeberg gained two Michelin stars.
Instead of traditional menus, the chefs cook 'free-form,' based on what's fresh and available that day. The result is a restaurant where diners tuck into unexpected plates with intriguing ingredients prepared according to the chef's moods and creativity that morning. Their restaurant was named The One to Watch at last night's gala in London's Guildhall.
Brett Graham's The Ledbury was also recognized for being the highest new entry on the list, landing in the No. 34 spot with his small but "perfectly realized" restaurant in London's affluent Notting Hill neighborhood. The food is described as French cuisine that uses traditional British ingredients, served in a formal yet relaxed atmosphere.
Chef Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana in Italy was also given the Chef's Choice Award for his whimsical, art-inspired cuisine. Bottura is described as a master of color, texture and geometry, whose food interpretations are paralleled with works of art. For example, a dish of Italian meats gently cooked sous-vide stand in for the New York skyline, while parsley foam is used to depict foliage. His restaurant jumped two spots from last year to place fourth on the list.
