This list of the World's 50 Best Restaurants was released this week. Been to any of them? The closest we're going to get is via this obsession of ours. Seriously, best 70 hours (or entire year of television) ever.

Now, I want more of his work, but I can't find him! Can anyone help me out? Here's the print I bought:
