THE WORLD’S 50 BEST RESTAURANTS AWARDS TO BE HOSTED IN VALENCIA, SPAIN IN JUNE 2023
50 Best announces that The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023 awards, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, will be hosted in the city of Valencia in Spain in June 2023.
The world’s most renowned chefs, restaurateurs and culinary stars gathered in London this past July for the 2022 edition of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, at the historic Old Billingsgate market, marking the 20th year of the awards.
2023 marks the first time the world-renowned celebration will be held in the city of Valencia, hosting the most important annual gatherings of chefs, restaurateurs, media and culinary icons in the gastronomic calendar. An extensive event programme hosted throughout the city will culminate in the much-anticipated awards ceremony when The World’s Best Restaurants 2023 ranking will be revealed. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore and experience Valencia, a much sought-after destination renowned for festivals, culture, sport and gastronomy.
Highlights for the programme in Valencia will include a series of key events which have become the cornerstone of 50 Best Restaurants celebrations: thought-leadership forum #50BestTalks; a 50 Best Signature Sessions series of collaborative dining events open to the public; a Chefs’ Feast showcasing the finest produce and cooking from the Spanish region and, of course, the awards ceremony and countdown itself. The world’s most renowned chefs will also impart their knowledge to local culinary students through a 50 Best educational event. The June event programme will be preceded by several special awards announcements, designed to honour the achievements of both individuals and establishments. The exact date of the awards ceremony will be confirmed in the coming months.
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 event held in London, UK, saw Geranium in Copenhagen, Denmark, named The World’s Best Restaurant. Geranium will now join the Best of the Best list of former No.1 restaurants, and therefore will not be eligible to appear in the ranking for 2023 and beyond unless it meets the requirements to classify as a new restaurant.
50 Best will continue to use its global platform to highlight even more noteworthy restaurants and bars worldwide – through the 50 Best Discovery platform and its 50 Best lists, special awards and content series. 50 Best will take the opportunity in 2023 and beyond to amplify diverse voices and positive messages, foster progressive discussion and cross-border collaboration, and encourage greater gastronomic discovery and exploration. The 50 Best organisation’s role in promoting restaurants and showcasing culinary talent remains more important than ever, continuing to support the hospitality sector by inspiring diners to seek out exciting gastronomic experiences, whether near or far.
