Only 6 of the 50 Best Restaurants in the World are in the U.S.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Want to eat at the best restaurant in the United States?

Then you need to get to the only restaurant in the U.S. that made the top five on a list of the best places to eat in the world, The World's 50 Best Restaurants.

It's a New York City-based restaurant, once owned by restaurateur Danny Meyer. And it's among five other American establishments that made this year's top 50 list.

The annual ranking that, as its namesake says, ranks the best restaurants in the world from votes by nearly 1,000 international restaurant industry experts. The awards and the list are organized and compiled by William Reed Media and were presented Monday evening at an event in London.

Check out the list to see which six U.S. restaurants made the original list.


6. The French Laundry
Yountville, Calif.
Cuisine: Modern French-American

Head to California's Napa Valley to experience tried and true decadence with Thomas Keller's The French Laundry, which came in at No. 50 on The World's 50 Best Restaurants list.

"Cult dishes such as salmon tartare cornet, oysters and pearls (a sabayon of pearl tapioca with oysters and white sturgeon caviar) or coffee and doughnuts remain firm favourites, but the daily changing nine-course tasting menus, including a vegetarian version, continue to evolve with ever-new creations," the report said.

5. Blue Hill at Stone Barns
Pocantico Hills, N.Y.
Cuisine: Conscious and ingredient-driven
