Calling BS

After El Bulli once again nabbed the top spot in Restaurant Magazine's annual 50 Best Restaurants list (Thomas Keller placed 5th and 6th), a writer for Britain's Independent thinks the competition is a farce and isn't afraid to say it: "El Bulli only opens for only six months of the year, and all seats are booked on the day they are released, I am amazed that so many judges were able to get in ... I suspect that some judges found it easier to go along with their peers' existing endorsement of El Bulli rather than actually get out there and find a challenger. If so, it casts some doubt on the validity of the awards. But the whole thing needs a shake-up." [IndyBlogs via Eater]
