latam 50 best

World’s 50 best Restaurants released the second edition of the  50 best restaurants in Latin America (for 2013 click here). Current tally: I’m still at the 12 out of the 50 of last year. Some general thoughts: We definitely need to up our foodie game here in Colombia. Only having 4 restaurants and the first being spot no. 39 is kind of sad.  I am also extremely happy Central is no. 1. I had a fabulous meal last year there, and the food was superb!
