Newsweek's 101 Best Restaurants in the World.

Recently, Newsweek gathered numerous chef's from around the world to make a list of the 101 Best Restaurants in the world. While some of them were 5 star places, there were Food Trucks, Carts, Street Food, Food cooked on someone's porch; all sorts of places. The common denominator was just plain good food.
For example:
City Market Luling, TX - (BBQ) Here's Michael Sterns Review - http://www.roadfood.com/Restaurant/Review/583-583/city-market
Franny's, Brooklyn, NY - (Pizza) www.frannysbrooklyn.com
Husk Charleston, SC - (Pigs Ear lettuce Wraps) http://huskrestaurant.com/
Farmshop Santa Monica, CA - (Burrata & Fruit) http://farmshopla.com/
Momofuku Noodle Bar NY, NY - (Pork Belly Ramen) - http://www.momofuku.com/restaurants/noodle-bar/
Osteria Philadelphia, PA - (Fresh Pasta) http://www.osteriaphilly.com/
Anthony Bourdain Recommends the taco Bars in Ensenada, Baja, Mexico
So, you see you don't need go to a 5 star place to have good food.
However, if you're in Paris and looking for Black Truffles:

    Only 2- Daniel and Momofuku.  
     
    I've been to Daniel twice, and both times were absolutely breathtaking.  Every detail was perfect.  I also had the honor once to have a meal that Daniel Boulud personally prepared at a private dinner.  That was one of the most unforgettable meals of my life.
     
    I used to go to Momofuku Noodle Bar once a week (in the cold months) for the ramen bowls.  DAMN I miss living in the city.

    I've been to Osteria. It's a little ironic that it made the list because it's generally not considered to be the best of Vetri's (the owner and arguably the best chef in Philadelphia) restaurants. His self-titled Vetri should be on there. I've never had comparable pasta anywhere else.

    None in the US! 
    But I've been to the Walking Street Night Market in Chiang Mai, Thailand and to Borough Market in London.

    I've heard about Farmshop but their prices are a bit high for lunch which is the meal I mostly eat out.  But I did notice they Gjusta bread.
     
    Gjusta is the latest up and comer around here with quite a varied menu.

    I know it doesn't fit with this topic but I didn't feel like starting another.
     
    Wish I got out more!

    NO. They stopped just short. I think that they wanted to keep the list believable.  By the way, they also left McDonalds off the list.

    We've been to only one on the list:  Le Chateaubriand.  It was very good, but hardly the best - even in its category - in Paris.  We had seen it featured by (I think) Anthony Bourdain; I suspect that in the interim between the time that show aired and when we visited both their pricess and pretense had increased.  As we generally focus on the 8th. and 15th. it took "some talking" on my part to get the Princess to venture into the 10th.

    BTW:  Here's a link to the article that still works: http://www.newsweek.com/top-chefs-choose-101-best-places-eat-around-world-64455

    And I must say that the "Sunrise Sampler" at our local Cracker Barrel is hard to beat for both satisfaction and value.
