2. Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London: 

Heston Blumenthal is a highly respected British chef, and the winner of three Michelin stars at his Fat Duck restaurant. He has been researching British recipes that date as far back as the 14th century.

3. Osteria Francescana, Italy: 

Located in Modena, Italy, this restaurant was voted best in the world by Restaurant magazine in 2011. Chef Massimo Bottura’s most standout dish is Camouflage–a thin layer of foie gras decorated with powders (hare blood, chestnut, various herbs) arranged to look like army woodland camo! The chef combines tradition with modernity for his dishes.

4. Eleven Madison Park, New York: 

From the mysterious string-tied box that kicks off proceedings to the waiter affixing a meat grinder to the table midway through the meal, little can be anticipated. Chef Daniel Humm servers mainly modern French food with a New York twist. His most well-known dish is surf clam with morcilla sausage and celery root clam baked with whelk, Parker House roll and chowder.

5. Noma, Denmark: 

Located in Copenhagen, Denmark, Chef-patron René Redzepi’s food can at times be shocking, but it strives to reflect the Danish landscape and culture.
