The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019 was just unveiled at Tuesday night, 25th June in Singapore. This is the first year with new voting mechanism, and Mirazur in Menton, France, is named The World’s Best Restaurant 2019. As the only non-French 3 starred chef of the Michelin Guide in France, Mauro Colagreco leads the restaurant leaps from the third to the champion, which is beyond controversy.

The Asia’s Best Restaurant 2019, Odette is doing well to clinch the 18th spot from no. 28 last year. On the other hand, Ultraviolet by Paul Pairet in Shanghai, China drops from its entry to the list at No.24 in 2018 to No.48 this year, which makes everyone’s jaw drop.

This year is also the official launch of “the Best of the Best” programme, which features the restaurants that have reached the No.1 spot in the list and are no longer eligible for the annual vote, including closed el Bulli, The French Laundry, The Fat Duck, El Celler de Can Roca, Eleven Madison Park and Osteria Francescana. This makes the list year more unpredictable and excited!

Complemented by a stunning French Riviera backdrop, Mirazur’s accolade is a testament to Chef Colagreco’s love of local produce, most of which is grown in the restaurant’s three-tiered garden just metres from the dining room.

William Drew, Director of Content for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, said: “This year we are thrilled to see Mirazur claim the No.1 spot after rising through the ranks since making its debut on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list at No.35 in 2009: it’s been brilliant to witness its progress. This has been a wonderful, progressive year for the list as a whole, with so many new entries from all corners of the globe. We are equally delighted to welcome the seven previous No.1 restaurants into the newly created Best of the Best category.”
As for the Nordic, it’s worth to mention that Frantzén, after receiving the first of the OAD Top 100+ European Restaurants 2019, finally enters The World’s 50 Best Restaurants this year as well and ranks No. 21. According to the coverage from Smart Shanghai, Frantzén will open a new restaurant in Shanghai next year.
