The Food and Wine Annual - how we score

You’ll notice in our top 20 restaurants that scores have sometimes moved up or down by half a point or so compared with reviews during the year.

This, for the record, is about drawing fi ner distinctions between these restaurants that we regard as the 20 best. They all scored at least 14.5 (most 15 or higher) during the year.

Here, we spread them just a little wider.
