The 50 Worst Restaurants In The World

The U.K.'s Restaurant magazine announced their annual San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurant rankings on Monday, to much online fanfare, grumbling, and intrigue. Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark, earned the #1 spot, and Chicago's Alinea restaurant from Chef Grant Achatz was at #7, and the top U.S. restaurant overall.

Giving the 50 best rankings the levity they deserve, the staff of the Chicago Tribune's The Stew blog compiled their own list: The 50 Worst Restaurants In The World.

Read the whole list, as it is all wonderful and hysterical.
