One hundred restaurants in China are qualified among the world’s top 1000 restaurants, while 113 restaurants in France and 116 restaurants in Japan are also on the list, according to the second edition of the French gastronomic classification “The List”, which was unveiled on Dec 5 in Paris.
The results for China include China’s mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao, said Philippe Faure, founder of The List and responsible for the Tourism Development Agency of France, in press release.
Italy is clearly in the “best value for money” section, while Switzerland has shown an excellent performance with 40 Swiss restaurants listed.
The List also offers a selection of more than ten thousand “Best Value” establishments, located in 135 countries and regions, featuring high-quality cuisine at reasonable prices.
In addition, the exact results of the List can be found by way of the application The List, freely downloadable on iPhone in six languages including French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese.
The first edition of La Liste was launched in December 2015, with the ambition to create a new world gastronomic reference.
