Good luck getting a reservation at these joints.

The annual list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants has been announced in New York, with Melbourne’s Attica coming in at number 33 (and winning the Best Restaurant in Australasia gong).

The list is voted on by an international panel of almost 1000 food writers, critics, chefs, restaurateurs and highly regarded gastronomes, making it about as close to a definitive list of the world’s best restaurants as you’re ever likely to see.

Attica actually slipped one position in the list this year, but there’s a good chance it could place higher next year, as it was announced that the 2017 ceremony will be held in Melbourne (sparking plenty of outrage in Sydney, where most of Australia’s list-worthy restaurants have traditionally come from).

This year’s winner, chef Massimo Bottura’s Osteria Francescana, is the first Italian restaurant ever to top the list. It beat out last year’s winner, Spain’s El Celler de Can Roca, and New York’s Eleven Madison Park to take the top honour.
