Revealed: The world's 100 best restaurants - Heston Blumenthal named chef of the year

Top chef Heston Blumenthal’s two restaurants, Fat Duck and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, have made it to the top 100 eateries of the world.

While Fat Duck snapped up the third position, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal came 23rd.

The annual poll by private jet lifestyle magazine Elite Traveler and Champagne Laurent-Perrier rated 10 British restaurants as the world’s best.

Chicago’s three-Michelin star Alinea restaurant took the top spot for the third consecutive year.

Heston Blumenthal, who was also voted the readers’ Chef of the Year, said: “Food critics are very important for the business and obviously to bring the general public in, but ultimately you’re cooking for your customers and you want to give them the best pleasure and experience. So to have this recognition, after we’ve been going for nearly twenty years, it’s fantastic.”
