As TonyC would say, F*** that noise.

The selection process is biased towards the bloviated jetset London-based bankers.

F’n that noise aside, if you could put one LA restaurant on there, which would you put and at around what number?

No French Laundry?

Good question. You should run for president or something.

But back to an answer to your question. n/naka.

You can be VP because that was going to be my answer as well.

All Thomas Keller restaurants took a beating this year. None of his places rank in the Top 50.

I’ve only eaten - so far - at Tickets in Barcelona and it was fabulously wonderful :slight_smile:
