Mode Media, the 9th largest overall U.S. media property with 144 million monthly unique users, today announced its 2016 Mode Foodie Top 100 Restaurant list for the U.S. and Worldwide. Curated by top restaurant critics and Mode, the Foodie Top 100 is the culinary experts’ guide to the very best restaurants.

The Foodie Top 100 Restaurant Awards are created by a small, highly select group of known food critics, and is based on food first, followed by experience, service and beverage options. It allows the critics to select the leading chefs at restaurants without a price point or wine list as a requirement.

“Top restaurants around the world continue to delight, with an increased focus on using the best and freshest local ingredients while broadening their range of global influences, said Patricia Wells. “The Foodie Top 100 Restaurants list stands apart as a guide for global restaurant exploration that is focused on carefully curating the most outstanding food experiences.”

 

“Chefs and restaurants around the world are constantly pushing the boundaries of what the dining experience can be, with innovative cuisines delighting palates every day,” said Samir Arora, Founder and CEO of Mode Media. “It’s difficult for food lovers to stay on top of the changing restaurant landscape. Our Foodie Top 100 list easily allows people to discover the restaurants most loved by experts across the globe.”

This year’s list includes prior award winners including Le Bernardin (NYC) and Benu (San Francisco) as well as new destinations Pok Pok (Portland), Elizabeth (NYC) and Animal (Los Angeles).
