This past Wednesday, April 3, the best dining experiences in the world were celebrated through the release of the Foodie Top 100 Restaurants Worldwide, as chosen by Glam Media’s Foodie.com editors, along with top food critics such as Patricia Wells, Gael Greene, Masuhiro Yamamoto, Ruth Reichl, Jonathan Gold, as well as Samir Arora, CEO of Glam Media.

Held at DIA: Chelsea, over 250 guests attended the event while enjoying hors d’oeuvres, music provided by Finger on the Pulse/Snacky Tunes, and many food-inspired works of art.  Included on the list were U.S. favorites such as Brooklyn’s Blanca, Manhattan’s Momofuku Ko, Berkeley’s Chez Panisse, and Chicago’s Alinea, among many others.

In addition, a list of the world’s Top Wine Directors and Sommeliers, as well as General Managers and Maître d’s, were also announced – included in this list were Aldo Sohm of Le Bernardin and Rajeev Vaidya of Daniel, both in New York.

The print edition of the Foodie Top 100 Restaurants Worldwide will be available this summer.  For a full list of the Foodie Top Restaurants, and to join in on the conversation with other foodies, visit their website.
