The world's best designed restaurants in 2013

Superior interiors from the global cuisine scene...

No one in the world knows their city's dining scene as intimately as Time Out's international corps of food critics. And many of them savour inspired design as much as a perfectly tenderised steak. So, for the sake of multisensory dining omniscience - and because it pleases us to look at pretty things - we asked our resident experts in 15 culinary destinations to name the hands-down best-designed restaurant in their neck of the woods.

With help from the people at London's Restaurant & Bar Design Awards, we also reveal the newly designed places currently causing a stir, because they are pushing the boundaries of interiors innovation or the boundaries of taste, depending on your point of view. All are exciting new design destinations that were unveiled in 2012 and entries in this year's awards.

So pick a city from the list below, and wine, dine and sublime-design your way around the world...
