A simpler and more lenient Michelin alternative. These are restaurants I've been to where the food has been beyond incredible. I don't travel too much, but I often find myself in cities with great food and diverse cuisines. If you ever find yourself in one of these cities, please go to one of these restaurants.
London, United Kingdom — Indian — $$$
At Lucknow 49 you find a small, cosy restaurant with polite and attentive staff. The menu is short but packed with goodies and offers authentic Indian dishes. This is one restaurant where you won't be ordering a butter chicken curry. The food here is absolutely incredible and the sauces are creamy yet spicy, while the meat is tender and flavorful. They also have a sizeable selection of vegetarian delights. Website.
