There are three kinds of people who walk this world. There are those, who like eating food, have a favourite cuisine, and a restaurant they frequent. Then, there are those who only eat to survive, but let’s not talk about them-we don’t need that kind of negativity in our lives. And finally, there are those who solely exist due to their true love for food. We belong to this third category of humans. Even though we’re very picky about what we eat, our zest for food is such that we’re always up for trying something new. May it be something super spicy, gooey and cheesy, or sugary and sweet- we’ll eat everything at least once (or maybe) twice!
We recently decided to visit the most trending restaurants around the world in twenty-seventeen. It would be our version of a pilgrimage. Sipping wine in France, eating spaghetti in Italy, trying Peruvian cuisine- it’s totally going to be a dream come true. We simply couldn’t stop counting the days until our trip starts. We were in a magnanimous mood, so we thought of giving a little back to society. If you are a food-o-holic like us, then make sure you visit these places at least once in your life.
Eleven Madison Park, New York, USA
Michelin starred chef Daniel Humm’s restaurant is the most trending place in the Big Apple because of its scrumptious food.

El Celler De Can Roca, Girona, Spain
This restaurant by the Roca brothers has been ranked world No. 1, twice. It serves the most mouth-watering food, presented in a very creative
manner. A wine cellar which has 60,000 bottles, and a Bonsai tree with caramalised olives- is the rage here.
Mirazur, Menton, France
Overlooking the French Riviera is a beautiful restaurant called Mirazur. The cuisine is inspired by the chef’s Argentinian-Italian heritage and the local French regions. Add to the delish food, a glass of wine- simply heaven on earth.

Central Restaurante, Lima, Peru
Set in a home-turned-restaurant, which was the chef’s childhood home, Central Restaurante gives a home away from home vibe. The food served here explores the biodiversity of Peru, and the cuisine takes you through every altitude, from 20 meters below sea level to 41,000 meters above it.

Alinea, Chicago, USA
Rated the number one restaurant in Chicago, Alinea has got a very chic vibe to it, due to its quirky interiors, the huge LED chandelier and the upstairs floor which is curated by a Chicago gallery owner. The signature dish here is the helium taffy balloon, from which you’re supposed to suck down a sticky and sweet dessert. One-way ticket to Chicago, please!

Mountain fish- Char, which is cooked at the table in hot beeswax and is the most sought-after dish here.
Robuchon au Dome, Macau, China
Where better to enjoy superb and well-crafted French cuisine than in a vaulted glass dome, 43 floors above the ground. The magnificent Swarovski crystal chandelier hanging from the middle of the ceiling, and soft musical notes from a piano, makes you feel as if you have entered a Hollywood movie set.
