    The French Foreign Ministry has compiled its own list of the top 1000 restaurants in the world -- and Chicagoans should be delighted to know that seven eateries in the city made the cut.

    La Liste, a group created by the France’s Foreign Minister and supported by the country’s tourism board, explained on its site why its list was the distinguishable while throwing shade at others. 

    “It leverages restaurant scores and other metadata from 200-plus leading gastronomic guidebooks and websites, making it the first and the only restaurant ranking based on transparent, objective and verifiable criteria,” La Liste said on its site.

    Regardless, seven Chicago eateries made the list:

    333.Grace, in the Near West Side
    343. Alinea, in Lincoln Park
    373. 42 Grams, in Uptown
    601. Sixteen, in the Near North Side
    826. Everest, in the Loop
    843.Tru, in the Near North Side
    987.Blackbird, in the Near West Side

    At the top of the list was Restaurant de l’Hôtel de Ville in Switzerland, followed by Per Se in New York.
