The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019 Announced

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants award ceremony was held in Singapore on 25 June 2019 at Marina Bay Sands

Celebrating the world’s diverse and innovative gastronomy, the 18th annual edition of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants award ceremony was held in Singapore. The top 50 restaurants in the global ranking were announced at the iconic Marina Bay Sands on 25 June 2019.

Ahead of the ceremony, the awards came under much controversy following a decision that previously held #1 spots would no longer be eligible to be a part of the list.

Just last week, the 51-120 extended list for 2019 was announced which featured crowd favourites including Indian Accent in New Delhi and Nobelhart & Schmutzig in Berlin. The list also featured a number of restaurants led by female chefs such as Core by Clare Smyth in London and Pim Techamuanvivit’s Nahm in Bangkok.

This year’s event saw 26 countries across five continents honoured with a place on the list, which culminated with the announcement of a new No.1, as Chef Mauro Colagreco took to the stage to collect the double honours for his restaurant, Mirazur, in Menton, France, as The World’s Best Restaurant 2019 and The Best Restaurant in Europe 2019.
