The Omnivore's List

Memetically, this list has been in intensive circulation this week. Looking over it, what struck me most about the list is that I'm not sure if I've eaten at a three-star Michelin restaurant. Given my weakness for the occasional extravagant meal at highly-rated restaurants and a lifetime of generally good eating, I feel sure I must have along the way; but since I haven't been buying Michelin Guides or tracking stars, I can't tell you for certain that I have.

(Counting quickly, there are 26 items on the list I don't know for certain I've eaten.)
