The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, today reveals its list of restaurants ranked from 51st to 100th ahead of the annual awards ceremony, taking place on Tuesday 5th October 2021 in Antwerp, Flanders. The annual list is created by a voting panel comprising over 1,000 independent authorities in the world of gastronomy, from renowned international chefs and food journalists to travelling gastronomes. This announcement has been much anticipated since the last list was revealed in 2019.

The 51-100 List in Numbers

·         The 51-100 list includes 13 new entries from 9 countries, offering a global spectrum from Belgium to Thailand

·         The 51-100 list includes restaurants in 22 countries across six continents

·         With two new entries in Tokyo – Sazenka and L’Effervescence – Japan has five restaurants in the 51-100, the highest number from any country

·         UK, France and Spain follow with four restaurants apiece

·         21 entries are from Europe, 13 from Asia and nine from South America

·         Two new entries for 2021, Kjolle and Mil in Peru, are restaurants co-owned by The World’s Best Female Chef Award winner Pía Léon

·         The highest new entry in the 51-100 list is Alchemist in Copenhagen, Denmark at No.58

·         St. Hubertus in San Cassiano, Italy has risen the greatest number of places, improving by 62 positions since 2019, when the list was extended to 120 restaurants

·         The list includes two entries from South Africa: Cape Town’s Fyn and La Colombe

 

As well as comprising many restaurants in well-known gastronomic locations, this year’s list also celebrates those across many parts of the globe. Belgian seaside town Koksijde is represented by Willem Hiele at No.77 and La Grenouillère in La Madelaine-sous-Montreuil in northern France re-enters at No.91. Cape Town’s gastronomic star is also on the rise, with La Colombe rising 33 places to No.81, while Fyn is a new entry at No.92.

More Asian Restaurants Than Ever Before

This year’s extended list includes more Asian establishments than ever before, with five countries represented in the list.

Two restaurants from Japan – Luca Fantin and L’Effervescence – and two new restaurants from Thailand – Sorn and Le Du –  are new entries for 2021.

William Drew, Director of Content for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, comments: “With restaurants in 22 countries across six continents, the 51-100 list this year recognises a broader range of destinations than ever. We’re thrilled to see 13 new entries join the list for the first time, as the gastronomic world continues to overcome the huge challenges wrought by the pandemic. We look forward to sharing the celebration at the awards ceremony in Antwerp, Flanders on 5th October.”

The World’s Best Female Chef
Presented the accolade of The World’s Best Female Chef Award, sponsored by Nude Glass, Pía Léon has two restaurants feature on the 51-100 list for the first time. Kjolle enters at No.95, after receiving the Highest New Entry Award in Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019.  Mil, the Cusco restaurant and research centre Léon runs with husband Virgilio Martínez, debuts at No.90.

 

The Voting Process

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2021 list is voted for by more than 1,000 international restaurant industry experts and well-travelled gourmets who make up The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy. The gender-balanced Academy comprises 26 separate regions around the world, each of which has 40 members including a chairperson. No sponsor from the event has any influence over the voting process.

Professional services consultancy Deloitte independently adjudicates the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, including the ranking from 51-100. This adjudication ensures that the integrity and authenticity of the voting process and the resulting lists are protected.

 

Results

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2021 will be announced live at a ceremony being held in Antwerp, Flanders on Tuesday 5th October, which will also be streamed live on the 50 Best Facebook and YouTube channels. Ahead of the ceremony, renowned chef Massimo Bottura of former No.1 restaurant Osteria Francescana and part of the exclusive ‘Best of The Best’ group, will host a live stream from the red carpet, where stars of the culinary world will gather in person once again. The announcement of the list and individual awards can be followed via the 50 Best social media channels, with the livestream beginning at 16:30 CET.
