1. Arzak, San Sebastian

Juan Mari Arzak, the owner, in a sense created the whole progressive food movement and really looked at food in a completely different way – he elevated it to an art form.

2. Alkimia, Barcelona

This is one of my favourites because of its ability to push boundaries, to take progressive cuisine to the next level and show what is possible in terms of technique.

3. Sketch, London

Not only is this place run by the famous Pierre Gagnaire, it’s also designed by Philippe Starck. Just the sheer design and drama complemented by the cuisine of Pierre Gagnaire makes for a completely unforgettable experience.

4. Indian Accent, New Delhi

What Indian Accent is doing for Indian food and the future of Indian cuisine is amazing. Chef Manish Mehrotra’s sheer ability and talent is unparalleled and he brings a certain old-school hospitality which is rare to find.

5. The Bombay Canteen, Mumbai

This is another place I love for making really good food accessible, for making it fun, for taking away the snobbery. It is not pretending to be something different. Again, how it is taking forward Indian cuisine is wonderful.
