    New York led the way among US cities -- that shouldn't surprise you -- on the list of the world's top restaurants.

    Eight New York eateries are among the world's top 100 restaurants, according to a new survey.

    Per Se, serving American and French cuisine at Columbus Circle, checked in at No. 6 on the list, according to the S.Pellegrino World's 50 best Restaurants list.

    Le Bernardin ranked No. 15. If the food is half as cool as the restaurant's Web site, that lofty placement seems well deserved. Le Bernardin is located in Midtown and serves mainly seafood.

    Jean Georges, serving French and Asian plates, also cracked the top 20. Just a block north of Columbus Circle, it made the list at No. 19.

    Momofuku Ssam Bar , in the East Village, ranked No. 31. As part of an NBCNewYork.com LOCALS ONLY event, chef David Chang is going to cook lunch for you on the street if you can find him this week.

    Other New York restaurants on the list include Daniel (No. 41), Babbo (90) and Del Posto (99).

    El Bulli, in Spain, was No. 1 in the world.

    A handful of other American joints made the list, but New York had by far the most restaurants among American cities.
