There is the new 'best restaurant in the world', and it is not what many expected.

So, immediately a question comes to mind:
why among the best restaurants in the world to find an Italian one should you reach the bottom of the list?

In fact, the first Italian is even in 29th place and then we find another at the 31st.

Simple, for a change in the regulation it is foreseen the drawing up of another merit list, let's say parallel:
ThereBest of the Best‘.

Ex-N.1 restaurants such as Eleven Madison Park in New York, The French Laundry in California, The Fat Duck near London and last year's winner, Osteria Francescana in Modena were excluded.

Therefore, will these multi-star restaurants really enter the "Best of the Best" program?

A note should be reserved for the Italian restaurant Lido 84, led by Riccardo Camanini, set in the majestic setting of Lake Garda, which was named 'One to Watch'for 2019, the other list of merit envisaged by this organization and destined for the rising stars.

Since 2002 'The World's 50 Best Restaurants'compiles the list of the best restaurants in the world, with the contribution of 1,000 experts in the sector is a reference point recognized worldwide.

What makes a restaurant the 'best' is left to the judgment of these credible and reliable gourmets. There is no set criteria checklist, but there are very strict voting rules.

However, starting from 2019 there is a novelty, as anticipated: the members of the group 'Best of the Best', composed of former No. 1 restaurants, are not allowed in the annual ranking, while the voting process and results of the' World's 50 Best Restaurants' are subject to the independent judgment of Deloitte, a world-renowned consulting company.

therefore, Mirazur won first place at the 'World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards' in Singapore - an event now considered the Oscar of the gourmet world.
Run by the Italian-Argentine chef Mauro Colagreco, Mirazur is located in Menton, France, near the Italian border.
