The World’s Best Restaurant for 2017

It’s no surprise that New York City’s Eleven Madison Park became the best restaurant in the world at a ceremony in Melbourne, Australia Wednesday.

The ceremony at the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards show, is widely considered the Academy Awards of fine dining.  Eleven Madison Park is the first U.S. restaurant to be kind of the hill since 2004. A thirteen year drought that has now been overcome with  grace, elegance and food to match.
