The 20th edition of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards will be presented on June 20 in Valencia, Spain, with a ceremony sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna.

The winner of last year’s award ceremony in London and the best in the world, chef Rasmus Kofoed’s Danish Geranium will be added to The Best of the Best list, which includes the best of previous years, and will not be classified.

Why is World’s 50 Best Restaurant List is Important for Gastronomy?

The 50 Best list was first prepared in 2002 by William Reed, a renowned media company in the UK. At that time, the 50 Best list was just a piece of content for Restaurant magazine, but over time, it has evolved beyond the boundaries of the magazine and has become a national and then a global ranking.

Since its inception, the awards have focused on ranking the top 50 best restaurants in the world, but over time, different classifications such as Best Female Chef, Chefs’ Choice voted by the previous year’s chefs, and the Icon Award have emerged. In some regions, the list of the best restaurants continued under the name 51-100. Measuring the trends of the global gastronomy world like a barometer, the list symbolizes a cross-border palate.

Best of Best Noma

Noma has been awarded “Best” four times in 20 years, doubling its three Michelin star reputation. Also, Chef Ferran Adrià’s The Catalan El Burri followed Noma by winning three times. However, after 20 years, the top three names of the voting were repeated among certain restaurants, and a new regulation was introduced in 2016 and the winners of the previous years were excluded from the evaluation. When Noma closed in 2016 and reopened in a new location with a new concept, it was re-evaluated and once again took the first prize in 2021.

Turkish Restaurants Are on the List

Before the ceremony, the names of the 51-100 selected restaurants were announced. Neolokal, once again made the list with its modern twist on traditional Turkish cuisine, this time in 63rd place.
