    I believe there could be a 90% popular conscensus for the top 5, then pass that you drop at 60 % of conscensus. El Bulli deserves the top of the listing, not because ALL their food is great (how could it be on such an epic multi-course service??), but because it is the most daring of them all. Because El Bulli is a moving gastronomic experience that outstand all it’s competitors, I truely believe that they deserve to be the #1. Fat Duck is in same line: daring, moving, experimental so YES for it at #2. Noma, I am fine with it at the very top, but as #3…not too sure though. Mugaritz and El Celler: Never been to both and am feeling bad about that because if they are rated that high, there might be something to discover from them. Hopefully I will have the good fortune to fill that gap soon.
