Top chefs arrive for food world “Oscars”

BILBAO, SPAIN (JUNE 19, 2018) (REUTERS) – Some of the best chefs from different parts of the globe on Tuesday (June 19) gathered in Bilbao, Spain for what is considered the “Oscars” of the food world – The World’s 50 Best Restaurants award ceremony.

The annual ranking of the world’s best restaurants is announced during the evening gala ceremony.

New York’s ‘Eleven Madison Park’ won first place in 2017 while Denmark’s ‘Noma’ has been crowned best restaurant four times.

The Best 50 list, which was launched in 2002, has gained prominence among chefs around the globe, rivalling the long-standing Michelin guide with its star system.

There are no criteria for putting a restaurant on the list, which is based on a poll of more than 1,000 chefs, food critics and other industry insiders spread across 26 regions. Each member gets 10 votes and at least four of those votes have to be for restaurants outside their region.
