Ahead of the top 50 announcement event to be held on 18 July, The World’s Best Restaurant list released their 51-100 rankings.
Sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, the heavily anticipated World’s 50 Best Restaurants released the rankings of the 51-100 restaurants. The main event for the top 50 is due to take place during a red carpet ceremony held in London, UK, on 18 July.
Now on its 20th year, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants is returning to London, where the list was first dreamt up. Ever since their inception in 2002, a series of panels compiled from global experts have voted for the restaurants they believe deserve a spot on the list.
There are a few rules in place to ensure fairness, namely, those on the panel can’t vote for any restaurant they have an economic interest in. Additionally, they must have eaten at restaurants that win their votes in the previous 19 months.
The 51-100 list includes three London restaurants – Shoreditch stalwart Brat (81), new entry Kol (73), and Lyle’s (54). There are 23 new entries from 15 different cities on this year’s list, including the Indian-inspired Trèsind Studio in Dubai (57) and townhouse restaurant Rosetta in Mexico City (60).
These extended rankings allow a greater number of hospitality establishments across the world increased visibility. Currently, the list features 22 territories from across six continents, with Asia boasting the majority of entries at 14. The continent is closely followed by Europe with 13, and North America in the third position with 11. Oceania has the fewest venues represented with just one restaurant.
An extremely revered list in the culinary world, inclusion in the 50 Best can bring widespread popularity to an outlet — besides giving its owners endless bragging rights.
It’s a debut for both Tresind Studio and Orfali Bros from Dubai, although boat restaurants have won several accolades in the last year alone, including but not limited to MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants.
Tresind Studio serves a set tasting menu and is an extension of Tresind, which opened in Dubai in 2014. Known for its experimental take on Indian food, it was one of 11 to receive a coveted star in the first listing of Michelin Guide Dubai, which called it a “masterpiece of originality and precision”. The restaurant also has an outlet in Mumbai, frequented by gourmands looking for elevated dining.
