I just booked a table at Noma in June :-) Go René! I am bummed that some of my favorites fell off the list, like my Basque favorite Asador Etxebarri... but Joan Marie Arzak is still keeping it real at #8, well deserved, however speaking of NE Spain, where is Carme Ruscalleda's magical Sant Pau on this list, yo? And is anyone surprised to see Momofuku Ssäm Bar on here? I mean, it's pretty good, but top 50? Just had drinks at Booker & Dax last night however and loved the cocktails...
