Where do chefs eat? The answer to that question used to be simple: in their kitchens or restaurants' dining rooms when there were no customers around. But chefs today trawl the world for inspiration, and we asked them to recommend the very best.

The first international restaurant guide by the insiders, with over 2,000 entries from 400 of the world's best chefs; from Jason Atherton to René Redzepi and David Chang, edited by food writer Joe Warwick. We asked them not only for their local knowledge, but which restaurants they'd travel specifically for, or where they celebrate a special occasion.

Ever wondered which restaurant Heston Blumenthal wished he had opened or where Ferran Adrià enjoys eating breakfast?

From bargain noodle joints to high-end restaurants; late-night haunts to all-day breakfasts; neighbourhood eateries to destination restaurants; wherever you travel, find the perfect restaurant.

- Filter by location, cuisine and price
- Explore recommendations on the interactive map to find what's nearby
- Turn on alerts while you're on the move to be informed when there's somewhere special just around the corner
- Save and edit your favourites to create a personal list, or share hidden gems with friends on Facebook, Twitter, by email or text

Full of treasures, an absolutely essential application for anyone who appreciates good food.
