The World's 50 Best Restaurants was unveiled this Tuesday, June 19th. The ceremony, which you could follow live on Fine Dining Lovers , awarded for the second time the title of best restaurant in the world at Osteria Francescana by Massimo Bottura . The Italian chef, who appeared very emotional at the announcement, was especially interested in talking about his Refettorio in Paris, which offers daily to the refugees and the poorest hot meals prepared from unsold. El Celler de Can Roca of the Roca brothers in Girona (Spain) won the silver medal and Mirazur of Mauro Colagreco in Menton took the third step of the podium. Many French restaurants have also been rewarded as Le Septime who arrives in 40th place (35th in 2017) but also Pavilion Ledoyen who climbs two ranks this year (29th against 31st in 2017), Alain Ducasse at Plaza Athenee (21st against 13th in 2017) and L'Arpège (8th - 12th in 2017) Another highlight of the evening: the appointment of Cédric Grolet as World's Best Pastry Chef . A few weeks before the ceremony, the World's 50 Best Restaurants committee had already announced several awards: Clare Smyth was named World's Best Female Chef ; Gaston Acurio, the famous Peruvian chef who shines his country's cuisine around the world, received the Diners Club® Lifetime Achievement Award ; and the Single Thread California, a restaurant serving Japanese cuisine, is the One to Watch of the Year.

The Test Kitchen, Cape Town (South Africa) | BEST RESTAURANT IN AFRICA Restaurant Mirazur What makes it special: In a stunning location on the French side of the Riviera, just moments from the Italian border, Mirazur is an idyllic spot to enjoy the food of the skilled chef Mauro Colagreco, which takes inspiration from his Argentine-Italian heritage as well as the local French region. About the chef: Colagreco headed to France in 2001 as a newly qualified chef, working with Bernard Loiseau until his death in 2003. He then worked with 50 Best regulars Alain Passard at Arpège and Alain Ducasse at Hotel Plaza Athénée before spending a year at Le Grand Véfour. In 2006, he established Mirazur, earning his first Michelin star within a year and a second in 2012. What’s on the menu: With ingredients coming from Colagreco’s own backyard farm and the market of Ventimiglia, diners can expect a feast of flavoursome products from just-picked heirloom vegetables to sparklingly fresh seafood. Courses might include monkfish with topinambur puree and Piedmont hazelnuts, or anchovy fillets on fried anchovy skeletons with juice from Menton’s famous lemons. Colagreco’s signature of oyster with tapioca, shallot cream and pear is a modern classic in the making. Other projects: Colagreco has been in France for almost 20 years and recently celebrated the 10thanniversary of Mirazur, but back in Argentina he’s making waves with Carne, a hamburger chain. He also owns Grand Coeur, a brasserie and restaurant in Paris. Source : https://www.theworlds50best.com
