The 2018 list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants ranked between 51 and 100 boasts of 15 restaurants from 12 countries. The full list of the World’s 100 Best Restaurants includes restaurants from 23 countries spanning five continents.

The list of restaurants ranked between 51 and 100 was announced by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, sponsored by S Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, ahead of its annual awards event, which is slated to take place on June 19, 2018, at Palacio Euskalduna in Bilbao, Spain.

The list was determined by a voting academy, comprising over 1,000 international restaurant industry experts, and is independently adjudicated by professional services consultancy Deloitte.

In a collection of restaurants marked by their geographic diversity, Sühring, Bangkok, Thailand (ranked number 54), was the highest new entry on this year’s 51-100 list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. This followed on from its success at The 2018 Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards in March, where it ranked fourth.

Alo, at number 94, celebrated an impressive upward trajectory. It is a relative newcomer to the Canadian culinary scene, having only opened in 2015. It now represents Toronto’s first appearance on a list by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants since 2002. Meanwhile, Leo in Bogotá, at number 99, was the first restaurant in Colombia to appear on the global list.

Last year’s number 99, Tokyo’s Florilège, climbed the 51-100 list in style, celebrating its ascent to number 59 in the world ranking. Other notable climbers include Selfie in Moscow, Russia, which rose 18 places to number 70 and Benu in San Francisco, USA, which was up 14 spots to number 53.

The USA’s new entries were this year’s Miele One To Watch winner, SingleThread from Healdsburg, California (at number 91) and Le Coucou from New York City (at number 85). Germany similarly furthered its status as a gastronomic destination, with both Nobelhart and Schmutzig, Berlin (at number 88), and Atelier, Munich (at number 97), featuring on the list for the first time.

Spain boasted an impressive six restaurants on this list, with Albert Adrià’s Engima, Barcelona, debuting on the list at number 95 and Elkano, Getaria, located in the Basque region, where the awards are taking place this year, entering the list at number 77.

Other newcomers were Don Julio, Buenos Aires, Argentina (at number 55); A Casa do Porco, São Paulo, Brazil (at number 79); L’Effervescence, Tokyo (at number 92) and 108, Copenhagen, Denmark (at number 98).

Two of the new entries represented re-launches of previously-ranked restaurants, namely Twins Garden , Moscow (at number 72) and Frantzén, Stockholm, Sweden (at number 65) in Stockholm.

William Drew, group editor, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, said, “We are delighted to be featuring such an impressive number of new entries on the 51-100 list this year. The global spread is testament to the geographic diversity of culinary excellence celebrated on this extended list and at our annual awards.”

“We are particularly thrilled that so many of the chefs and restaurateurs from the 51-100 list will be joining us in person at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards in Bilbao on June 19. It is an honour to acknowledge the world’s most exciting new culinary talent, as well as celebrating perennial favourites,” he added.
