2006. Best restaurant in the world. Every year The Restaurant Magazine draws up a list of the top fifty restaurants in the world, as voted by its writers and critics. ElBulli had already been named top restaurant in 2002. But there was a change in 2006. For the first time, the list was drawn up by over 500 critics, chefs and gourmets from all over the world, which gave it much greater prestige than in previous years. This sizable select jury named elBulli as the top restaurant.
