Ahead of the annual 'World's 50 Best Restaurants' awards ceremony on 13 June, British magazine Restuarant has revealed which restaurants have made it onto the 51-100 list for 2016.
Surprisingly, only three UK restaurants made it the list, all of them based in London. They include Shoreditch's Michelin star Lyle's, Hedone in Chiswick, and Fergus Henderson's famous nose to tail restaurant, St. John, which fell from 55 to 91 this year.
Epicure in Paris, which has three Michelin stars, was a new entry to the list at 69, while Den in Tokyo came in at 77 and was also winner of the “One to Watch” award.
Two of America's most-known restaurants have fallen out of the top 50, with Thomas Keller's three Michelin star The French Laundry going from 50 to 85 and New York's Per Se going from 40 to 52.
Other entries included Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée at 58, L'Atelier Saint-Germain de Joël Robuchon at 80 and David Chang's Momofuku Ko at 97.
This years ceremony is going to be held in New York and will see if Catalonia's El Celler de Can Roca retains the top spot or if Massimo Bottura's Osteria Francescana in Italy will be crowned the world's best restaurant.
