News Dig.

France won 6 spots on the list with Spain having 5 and Italy 4. What’s surprising is that New York managed to win 4 spots, that’s pretty impressive considering it’s just one city. Does that mean New York alone has better restaurants than most countries?

Have you ever visited any of these restaurants on the list?
