CNN Travel has published an article few days ago where it brings 14 hot new global restaurants for 2018. Since it's a sort of global gourment guide for 2018, it's a great honour to be on the list. 

-Here are 14 additions to the culinary must-try list for those keen to get in first at the hottest tables around the world – writes CNN.

And suprisingly or not – Dubrovnik found its place on this list too. Sensus, restaurant of the Hotel Excelsior was placed 9th.
-With one of the finest views of the beautiful walled old town of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic Sea, Sensus at the Excelsior Hotel already had much in its favor even before the plates from chef Petar Obad were added into the mix. His interpretations of Mediterranean classics and local Croatian delicacies brings in diners as much as the Instagram-worthy backdrop – it's written in the article.

Author was especially delighted with a signature dish of ravioli with sweetbreads, truffle, prosciutto and a sauce made from Malvasija wine, which according to CNN demonstrates the chef's melding of flavors, ingredients and textures.

-Herbs from the kitchen's garden and local sun-ripened produce are crafted into lamb with rosemary, artichokes and onion marmalade, while "grandma's flan" is Obad's dessert homage to a beloved family recipe-writes CNN Travel.
