Tasty morsels about Chicago's food scene

One of the world's 50 best restaurants is in Chicago (no shocker there)

And the best restaurant in North America is....

Alinea.

S.Pellegrino's annual list of the world's 50 best restaurants was released Monday, and the Lincoln Park restaurant was the only Chicago restaurant to make it. It moved up the rankings from 10 to 7, and was given the distinction of best North American restaurant. Kudos to chef Grant Achatz and team.

The other U.S. restaurants cracking the top 50 are: Daniel (8), Per Se (10), Le Bernardin (15), Momofuku Ssam Bar (26), the French Laundry (32), wd-50 (45) and Eleven Madison Park (50). All are in New York except French Laundry, which is in Yountville, Calif.

The best in the world? Noma in Denmark. The Chicago connection? This kid from Deerfield is staging there this summer.
