The 50 best restaurants in the world for 2018 unveiled
In 2018, the world's 50 best restaurants were announced, with Italy's Osteria Francescana taking first place. It is not the first year that Osteria Francescana, whose chief cook is Massimo Bottura, has been named the best place in the wide variety of restaurants - the one that is known for its original reimaginations of classic Italians - which also came to the top in 2016.
None of the UK restaurants made it into the top 30, but London's The Clove Club came in at 33, Lyle at 38 and The Ledbury at 42. Another striking feature was the shortage of feminine cooks in the Oscars of upscale gastronomy. Only four of the top 50 restaurants are run by females.
