Update: The official list has now been released, and it is the same as the one we published below earlier.

It's that time of year again: The World's Top 50 Restaurants (Click to watch the ceremony live). This isn't just another listicle from the content puppy-mill du jour, it's a full on statement from an authority in the restaurant world, Restaurant magazine, sponsored by San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna. Cause you gotta have something to wash it all down with (and wouldn't want to spoil your palate).

Even though the official announcement isn't due until later today, it appears that the list has already been leaked online. Here are this year's rankings, courtesy of Brazilian publication Folha de S.Paulo (we have put the page through Google Translation for you).
