New York restaurants claimed a coveted four spots on San Pellegrino's World's 50 Best Restaurants list, announced last night. (Released last week, NYC also scored an impressive five slots in the list's back fifty.) Joining top-fivers like Copenhagen's Noma, Lima's Central and this year's first-place pick, Osteria Francescana of Modena, Italy, is New York's own Eleven Madison Park, bumping up two slots from fifth last year, making for the best showing from a U.S. restaurant since California's the French Laundry nabbed third place back in 2005.
