MAP: 100 things to eat in Iowa before you die

posted by snekse
I stumbled upon this list just recently. It was compiled by The Des Moines Register back in 2006. It's a great list, but unless you're really familiar with Iowa, it's really just entertaining reading since you wouldn't know where half the places are located. So we decided to create a map of all 100 places - that way you can attempt all of the food on your own. Or if you're not quite up to that, you can see someone attempt the list at Roadfood Digest.

And of course we have to start a Nebraska version of this Midwestern foodies' bucket list to compliment the Iowa list. So tell us what, where and why (and when if applicable) are the 100 things to eat in Nebraska before you die.

S.Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants 2009

posted by snekse

Restaurant magazine has just released the 2009 list of the World's 50 Best Restaurants. The awards were based on 4,185 votes cast by 837 restaurant critics, chefs, restaurateurs and other qualified restaurant experts. You can see more about the voting process on the website.

Ferran Adria’s culinary mecca, El Bulli, and Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck restaurant once again top the list.

Michelin 3-star restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, owned by the Hell's Kitchen chef, failed to make the top 100 which is surprising since it was 13th on the list last year.

Thomas Keller's flagship restaurant dropped 7 notches to #12 and was beat out by it's New York cousin, Per Se, which took 6th place.

Grant Achatz from Chicago breaks into the top 10 with Alinea. Manresa squeaked in at #93. The United States had 8 restaurants in the top 50 and 12 restaurants in the top 100. Not bad when you consider this list of compiled of the greatest restaurants in the world and is bound to have a slight European bend. This can probably best be seen in the fact that Les Creations de Narisawa was the first Japanese restaurant to make the list, yet Japan racked up an insanely high number of Michelin stared restaurants last year.

Omaha Restaurant Reviews

posted by snekse
So our current list of Omaha Restaurants has grown quite massive. The fact that we were integrating in links to restaurant reviews just made the matters worse. So I present to you, a separate list of Restaurant Reviews. Hopefully this will make perusing the lists a little less daunting. As an added benefit, in order for me to make this possible, I had to write a lot of code that also just happens to make it really easy to filter these lists. In the future you'll be able to filter this list by review site. Not a huge deal, but nice to have. The better use will be on the other list where I hope to allow users to filter by cuisine, location, and who knows what else. Hope you enjoy.

Omaha Restaurant Reviews


I've compiled a list of restaurant reviews in the Omaha area. I'll be constantly updating this list, so you may want to bookmark this page. Simply click on one of the links below to view the list with or without notes. I'll also be adding filtering features so you can select restaurant reviews by location and/or cuisine. In the mean time, if you can't find what you're looking for below, try the search box in the upper right corner of the site.

    World's 50 Best Restaurants - 2007

    posted by snekse
    Restaurant magazine has released it's annual list of the World's 50 Best Restaurants. This is one of the more democratic and discerning list compiled, though it is a bit biased towards Europe. Either way, I enjoy it and look forward to it every year. Here's a description of how the list is decided.
    We divided the world into regions, with a chairperson in each region appointed for their knowledge of their part of the restaurant world. These chairs each selected a voting panel, who cast a total of 2,800 votes.

    There is no list of nominees; each member of our international voting panel votes for their personal choice of five restaurants. They may vote for up to two restaurants in their own region, the remaining votes must be cast outside their home region. Nobody is allowed to vote for their own restaurant and voters must have eaten in the restaurants they nominate within the past 18 months. These rules ensure that the list is as comprehensive as possible.
    This year was the year of the holding pattern as the top 6 restaurants remained unchanged. As such, El Bulli has maintained it's crown as the top restaurant in the world. Even more impressive is the fact that's it's held a spot in the top 3 since 2002! The Fat Duck, Pierre Gagnaire, The French Laundry, Tetsuya's, and Bras round out the rest of the top 6 (in that order).

    Congratulations to Thomas Keller who not only had the top rated restaurant in the US with The French Laundry (#4), but also was able to (again) claim the second highest spot with Per Se (#9). It's almost cheating though since they are practically the same restaurant in different locations.

    Congratulations should also go to chef Grant Achatz, who's restaurant Alinea (#36) was the highest new entry onto the list. However, I think the fact that Charlie Trotter's (#30) beat out Alinea is going to cause some strife on the eGullet forums.

    I am a bit surprised to see the absence of Manresa in at least the top 100, but the Zuni Cafe is; I love Zuni, but it seems odd.
