With its international mix of flavors, there's no doubt about it - Dubai has some of the best dining outlets in the world.

The top 50 will be announced during a ceremony in New York on June 13, but prior to that, a list of the best 51-100 has been shared.

Zuma, in Dubai's DIFC came in at number 89 - it's the fifth consecutive year to be featured.
