One of the most acclaimed restaurant rankings – The World’s 50 Best Restaurants will announce this year’s list at a ceremony on 18 June.

What to follow

Eleven Madison Park was the winner last year but with four months renovation works last year and the steep competition their top spot is far from secure this year. There will be newcomers to the list and we can’t wait to find out who they are. There will be a name certainly missing despite all the critics’ praises – the recently reopened Noma in Copenhagen as it lacks the minimum time since opening to be considered for the price.
