This year’s edition of ‘The World’s 50 Best Restaurants‘ by publishing group William Reed Business Media has just been released. The ranking is one of the most highly anticipated events of the culinary calendar.
The so-called “Oscars of gastronomy” have named the Danish restaurant Geranium as the top restaurant in the world, followed by Central in Peru’s Lima and Disfrutar in Barcelona, Spain. The top ten roundup includes three Spanish and four Latin American venues.
Founded in 2007 in Copenhagen, Geranium has quickly climbed to the top of the 50 best restaurants list, moving from 49th place in 2012 to second place last year. Geranium specializes in meat-free dishes and was the first restaurant in Denmark to obtain three Michelin stars.
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants was first launched 20 years ago by the British magazine Restaurant Magazine, as an alternative to the Michelin stars system. The ranking has faced criticism in recent years for eletism, with claims of jurors favoring restaurant owners they know, and for restaurants only in Europe or North America having won the top places.
This chart shows the top restaurants in 2022, according to the William Reed Business Media annual list.
