This week’s Newsweek and The Daily Beast name the top 101 best places to eat in the world, based on the recommendations made by a 53 member panel. The judges were acclaimed chefs themselves, so they ought to know.

Two San Francisco restaurants made the list. They were included among just 14 other North American dining spots. The two named? Fanfare please. Coi and SPQR. In a previous post we mentioned Coi is among the most expensive restaurants in the U.S., so it’s good to see you’ll be getting your money’s worth.

Here’s what was said about the two restaurants:

COI
San Francisco. 415-393-9000
Specialty: Kelp and Squid-Ink Pasta

“An experience like no other in the world. Beautiful, eccentric, and soulful, in sync with all of the best products of Northern California, and with a modern poetic vibe that only chef Daniel Patterson can speak.”
Elizabeth Falkner, author, Demolition Desserts

SPQR
San Francisco. 415-771-7779
Specialty: Ricotta Gnudi

“Chef Matt Accarrino has the best pasta in San Francisco, and Shelley Lindgren is one of my favorite sommeliers. Their attention to detail in the service, food, and amazing wines will blow anyone away.”
