Joined in a tie with Guy Savoy, Le Bernardin was previously ranked the number one restaurant in the United States and number two in the world. Le Bernardin is one of only three New York City restaurants within the top 10 restaurants in the world and one of only nine United States-based restaurants in the top 100, in addition to its new number one ranking.
Of the win, chef and co-owner Eric Ripert said, “We are delighted to be recognized by La Liste. It’s a great motivation for the team, who work so hard throughout the year to deliver a special experience to our guests time and time again.”
La Liste debuted in 2015, providing an objective and democratic ranking of the world’s most outstanding restaurants powered by a proprietary algorithm that gathers information from over 600 leading food guides, user-generated review sites and global publications such as The New York Times, Michelin Guide, TripAdvisor and more. Commentary directly from restaurant guests is also weighed within the algorithm. Based in Paris, La Liste reviews nearly 16,000 restaurants, with the resulting restaurants located in 180+ countries, on five continents.
