Two restaurants in Spain’s northern Basque Country, Mugaritz and Arzak, came in at No. 4 and No. 8 on the list, making Spain the world’s top ranking gastronomic destination with three of the top 10 slots.Elena Arzak, named the best chef in the world two years ago, told Reuters she also thought the rankings could help lift Spain’s depressed economy.

“Getting on the list has a major international impact because it encourages food tourism and generates excitement among people who like fine dining,” Arzak said.“People come from all over the world … recently we’ve been seeing lots of visitors from Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Canada. It’s like you get to travel all over the world without leaving the restaurant, just talking to the people who come in.”
