Elite Traveler Launches World’s Top Restaurants Database

Find your next memorable meal using 60 criteria including location, price and menu type.

By Alex Martin

Elite Traveler is proud to launch the Top Restaurants database for 2021, a comprehensive tool containing key information on the most innovative and exclusive fine dining restaurants in the world.

Presented alongside descriptions and luxury rankings, the database allows you to search for your next memorable meal with over 60 different criteria including location, price, menu type and even interior styling.

Every restaurant in the database hits the minimum standard of Michelin-level dining, but the majority go above and beyond to ensure an unforgettable culinary experience. By analyzing the data, each restaurant has been ranked from Bronze to Gold across a variety of sectors, including the quality of its menu and its sustainability practices.

Only the very best have been selected for the Readers’ Choice award, which has only been given to the restaurants personally verified by our loyal UHNW readership.

The Top Restaurants database is now available on Elite Traveler

To celebrate the launch of Top Restaurants and our 20th anniversary, we have launched a series of features championing the chefs and restaurants who have made fine dining what it is today. From the first zero-waste restaurant in the US to Michelin-starred chefs committing to 100% vegan menus, fine dining has always been a hotbed for innovation. We also look to the future, shining a light on the chefs who are striving to make the industry more sustainable.
