Dishes from Zagat’s best NYC restaurants are as fancy as you’d expect (PHOTOS)

This year’s Zagat list of 50 best restaurants in New York City has been released, and the top 10 eateries on the list are about as fancy as you’d imagine.

The list, which is gathered via online survey and uses a scale of 1 to 30 in service, food and decor, features crowdsourced and critical favorites alike. No restaurant has ever been scored perfectly, but these come awfully close, and for good reason, if these photos of incredible dishes are any indication.

Feast your eyes on these edible works of art, listed from 10th best to No. 1.
