101 Best Hotel Restaurants Around the World

October 8, 2013 -

The Daily Meal today released "101 Best Hotel Restaurants Around the World." With hundreds of innovative and elegant restaurants to choose from, selecting the top 101, as well as ranking them, was a real culinary challenge.

The Daily Meal grouped the selections by continent and invited a panel of experienced bloggers, restaurant critics, and other food and lifestyle writers from around the world to vote for their favorite restaurants in an anonymous survey.

There were a few rules we established in order to narrow the selection of hotel restaurants: The hotel had to have at least 15 rooms (so quaint, family-run bed-and-breakfasts, and famed restaurants that happen to have a few rooms for the convenience of guests, were immediately eliminated). In addition, notable restaurants located just a few steps from hotels, even if they are under the same ownership, were also excluded.

We did not discriminate on location; no island, nation, or province was off the table. From The Tamarind Tree at Curtin Bluff in Antigua, West Indies, to Anne-Sophie Pic at Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne, Switzerland, to Fountain Restaurant at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia, our worldwide list spans six continents, more than 50 countries and nations, and more than 80 cities. Regional breakdown is: Europe, 26; United States, 20; Asia and the Indian Ocean/Pacific Ocean, 24; Caribbean/Central America, 9; Africa, 9; Canada, 5; South America, 5; Middle East, 3.
