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