One Irish restaurant has been named in the world's top 100

Can you guess where it is? (It’s not Burdock’s)

RESTAURANT PATRICK GUILBAUD, the two-Michelin starred Dublin institution has been named in the world’s top 100 restaurants. The Merrion Square eatery has been named 67th in the Elite Traveler Elite 100 restaurant list.

Guilbaud beat out world-famous establishments like Nobu’s London and Los Angeles restaurants, Momofuku Ko in New York and Alain Roux’s Waterside Inn to reach 67th.

British chef Heston Blumenthal came close to snatching top spot, but his Berkshire restaurant The Fat Duck was beaten into third by a pair of US establishments.

Daniel by Daniel Boulud is based on New York’s Upper East Side and serves dishes such as Beef Mosaic with Yellow Beet and Foie Gras on their $125 per person menu, before drinks. Adding caviar, however, will add anywhere from $190 to $470 to your bill. And this is a dish from the world’s top restaurant, Alinea in Chicago:

Alinea is run by three-Michelin starred head chef Grant Achatz and has been serving up dishes such as “helium, balloon, green apple” for nine years.

Achatz is described as a “molecular gastronomist” and the restaurant only has one menu. The damage? A minimum of $210 per person based on when you can get a ticket.

Yes, rather than take reservations, Alinea sells tickets to seatings. And the tickets don’t include tax, drinks or service.
