Two very popular restaurants in New York State are considered two of the "Most Legendary Restaurants in the World."

Taste Atlas recently highlighted the 150 Most Legendary Restaurants in the World.

"These are not just places to grab a meal, but destinations in their own right, comparable to the world’s most famous museums, galleries and monuments. Each one has withstood the test of time, eschewing trendy gimmicks in favor of traditional, high-quality cuisine," Taste Atlas states.


The travel website had its reporters travel the world and dine in small restaurant, family-run eateries, and award-winning establishments to craft the list.

You'll have to travel to Vienna, Austria and dine at Figlmüller to enjoy the world's most legendary restaurant.

But you won't have to leave New York State to enjoy the world's second-most legendary restaurant.
