The World's 50 Best Restaurants

The World's 50 Best Restaurants

Live from London's Guildhall on Monday 29th April, 2013.
Anticipation Builds for the 2013 Edition
By Emma Kearsley

The 2013 edition of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants draws near, after the success of the first Asian edition held at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Chef Yoshiro Narisawa’s Japanese restaurant, Le Crèation de Narisawa, was named The S.Pellegrino Best Restaurant in Asia and The S.Pellegrino Best Restaurant in Japan, thanks to its delicate, earthy cuisine.

For the third year running, the prestigious awards ceremony organised by Restaurant Magazine will be streamed live on www.finedininglovers.com from London’s historic Guildhall on Monday 29th April. The Finedininglovers digital platform will allow a global community of food devotees the opportunity to discover the latest news and follow the event live. Exclusive content, videos, interviews and updates on The World’s 50 Best contenders will be published in real time on the engaging digital space.

Suspense is building as the global culinary community wait to find out if Renè Redzepi’s Noma of Copenhagen will take home the title of world’s best restaurant for the fourth consecutive year – to match the record set by El Bulli di Ferràn Adrià – or if some new, unexpected temple of taste will take a surprise lead. The four Australian restaurants that made it onto the list in 2012 – which actually includes the world’s top 100 restaurants – includes Quay ranked at 29, Marque at 61, Attica at 63 and Tetsuya’s at 76.

Each year, the list is created from the votes of the World’s 50 Best Academy, an influential group of over 900 international leaders in the restaurant industry (food critics, writers, chefs, gastronomes…) representing 26 regions around the world. Members list their choices in order of preference based on their best restaurant experiences from the previous 18 months.

S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna are ambassadors of Italian excellence, lifestyle and fine dining across the globe and are the main sponsors of this globally recognised event that showcases worldwide dining trends.
