Dinner, the restaurant owned by Celebrity chef and after dinner speaker, Heston Blumenthal, has been named the seventh best restaurant in the world in an annual survey.
Heston’s restaurant was positioned at number nine in 2012 and has moved up two places on this year’s list. This was the survey’s eleventh year in action and it reflects the opinions of eight hundred international food experts.
Despite producing numerous accomplished chefs including Gordon Ramsay, Nigella Lawson, Mark Edwards and Heston himself, the Great British food scene is still considered to be trailing behind other European countries.
When asked about his successful restaurant reaching number seven on the list, Heston exclaimed “I love the fact that it is in Britain. We were the laughing stock of Europe. That’s all changed’.
In this year’s survey there were three British restaurants in the top 50 and the top four were all European, number five was in New York and six in Sao Paolo.
