World's 50 Best restaurants 2019, Mirazur at the top - The full list

Mirazur in Menton, France has been announced as the number one restaurant at the The World’s 50 Best Restaurants ceremony in Singapore.

Speaking on stage just after receiving the highly contended accolade, chef Mauro Colagreco said: “Wow, wow, wow, wow… What a crazy year, three Michelin stars and number one in the world, all in the same year. It’s a year I will remember forever.”

“Today we are celebrating France and its value: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity. France has allowed me to express myself, Argentina to my memories from my childhood, to Brazil who has offered me the love of my life and to Italy where more than half of my team are coming from.”

“Cuisine is able to close all kinds of borders. I would like to express to all the chefs in the world my love and gratitude.” He finished with a poetic line: “Borders? I’ve never seen one, but I have heard they exist in the mind of some people.”

Number two on the list went to Noma.2 in Copenhagen, a new entry that excited the crowd and showed just how influential Rene Redzepi is to the gastronomy world, the third spot was awarded to Asador Etxebarri in San Sebastian.

The One to Watch award went to Lido84 on Lake Garda in Italy, the Highest Climber on the list was Azurmendi in Spain and the Best Female Chef title was given to Daniela Soto-Innes from Cosme in New York. Humanitarian chef José Andrés collected the inaugural American Express Icon Award.

The World’s Best Pastry Chef went to Jessica Prealpato from Paris and The Sustainability Award went to Schloss Schauenstein in Switzerland by chef Andreas Caminada. The Chef’s Choice Award, voted for by all the chefs on the list, went to Alain Passard. The Art of Hospitality Award 2019 went to Den in Tokyo, Japan with chef Zaiyu Hasegawa.

2019 saw a big change in the overall organization of the list with previous winners, Massimo Bottura, Daniel Humm, Ferran Adria, The Roca Brothers, Thomas Keller, Rene Redzepi and Heston Blumenthal, included in a new Best of The Best list. Noma.2 was ranked 2nd on the list because it’s a new restaurant in a new location.
