World's Top 10 Life-Changing Restaurants

Nihonryori Ryugin

Seiji Yamamoto's blend of traditional kaiseki with the avant-garde is so innovative that even superstar chef Ferran Adrià has made the pilgrimage to eat in this tiny Tokyo restaurant. Yamamoto's favorite new dish: wild Magamo duck from the Kagoshima prefecture seared over charcoal, smoked over straw, and served with a mix of freshly grated wasabi and soy sauce (left).
