>the fat duck per se

...So I couldn't resist doing a Google map mashup of the so-called "World's 100 Best Restaurants". This exercise, while silly, is surprisingly useful, since you do get to read the current cultural current. Depicted here are the "top 50". The rest of the 100 entries can be found here. (You can click on individual restaurants, zoom in and out, and have the choice of map view, satellite view or hybrid.)

The mashup has minimum info so far, but I will add more details (websites and other useful tidbits) whenever I think of something.

1. El Bulli, Spain
2. The Fat Duck, UK
3. Pierre Gagnaire, France
4. The French Laundry, USA
5. Tetsuya's, Australia
6. Bras, France
7. Mugaritz, Spain
8. Le Louis XV, Monaco
9. Per Se, USA

10. Arzak, Spain...

And these are 13 out of the "top 50", all concentrated here.
