    It is laughable that Nobu is on the top 100 best restaurants in the world but there is not a single one from Japan; what a joke.

  2. Elaine Ridder Says:

    Hi,
    I just went through the list of the 100 best restaurants in the world and I have been to five:
    Zuni Cafe, Le Grand Vefour, Gramercy Tavern, Chez Panisse and Le Bernardin. So many restaurants, so little time!

    Ciao, Elaine
