North America has two new entries: Smyth in Chicago at No. 90 and Fauna in Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico, at No. 100. There are two more restaurants in Mexico: Guadalajara’s Alcalde at No. 67 and Mexico City’s Sud 777 at No. 82.

In the U.S., Le Bernadin in New York is at No. 71 and Cosme (formerly the top-ranked restaurant in America), also in New York, at No. 99.

A number of restaurants have descended in the rankings, including seven that appeared last year among the Top 50: Mugaritz in Spain was No. 31 and is now at No. 81, while Clove Club in London dropped from No. 38 to No. 80 and Le Bernardin in New York from No. 44 to No. 71.

Another surprise is the downgrading of the Italian restaurant Le Calandre, from No. 41 last year to No. 51 now.

Forbes India notes that the French Le Doyenné in Saint-Vrain, an “unassuming restaurant” that appears at No. 70 “ranks higher than the triple-Michelin-starred chef Emmanuel Renaut’s Flocons de Sel No. 76, or chef Alexandre Gauthier’s two-starred Grenouillère at La Madelaine-sous-Montreuil (No. 77), currently closed due to the bad weather that flooded it, and even above Yannick Alléno’s prestigious, triple-Michelin-starred Pavillon Ledoyen in No. 79.”
