Every year, the culinary world gets excited for the best restaurants list. We take into account the newcomers which made a statement, the familiar names and whether they maintained their previous position or took it a notch higher. While the reviews come in left and right and the hype makes them part of some people’s tourist itineraries, we wonder: what is the one stand-out dish to get if you were to score a seat in these often fully-booked places?

Little blocks of glazed sweet potatoes stand off to the side,” according to The Washington Post.
The dish looks like a vignette with purple flowers surrounding the fresh oyster. The World’s 50 Best calls the dish a modern classic as the tapioca pearls complement the softness of the oyster and the pear elevates the fresh, clean taste of the dish.
