This week at Fine Dining Lovers was all about Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants, which were announced during a special ceremony in Mexico City on Monday. 

We hosted the livestream, where restaurant Central, from Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez, was proclaimed king of the list for the third consecutive year. There were many other surprises along the way too.
