Jump to navigation Jump to search

La Liste is a list of the 1,000 best restaurants in the world. It is sanctioned by France’s Foreign Ministry and tourism board and was launched in Paris in December 2015.[1][2] La Liste is cited as the French Foreign Ministry's response to the British published gastronomic guide The World's 50 Best Restaurants.[3]

Founder of La Liste, Ambassador Philippe Faure, was previously CEO of Gault & Millau, Head of the French Tourist Board,[4] and served as Ambassador of France to Japan from 2007 to 2011. Corporate sponsors of La Liste include Moët Hennessy, Nestle and Accor Hotels.[5]

Methodology[edit]

La Liste is compiled using a data processing algorithm. The list factors in more than 400 international dining guides, crowd-sourced sites (such as Yelp and TripAdvisor) or press reviews (New York Times, Washington Post...). It also takes into consideration Zagat, Michelin, the James Beard Award, Gault & Millau, OpenTable.
