Last night foodies around the globe waited eagerly as the list of the top 100 restaurants around the world was revealed at the historic Guildhall in London. With something in the realm of 900 hospitality experts compiling the list, the unveiling of rankings each year is a highlight of the hospitality calendar, with top places set to inspire and shape the culinary landscape across the globe.
Most of the buzz reserved for the top 50 restaurants, and this year Australian restaurants have claimed two of those spots with Melbourne’s own Attica coming in at number 21 and Sydney’s Quay slotting in nicely at number 48.
It’s been a steady climb for Shewry since Ripponlea’s Attica debuted on the list at number 73 in 2010, while Quay, shuffling around a few places each year, has been consistently awarded the honour of a place in the top 50 for the last five years.
The World’s 50 Best Academy is made up of 27 separate regions around the world and each has its own panel comprised of food critics, chefs, restaurateurs and highly regarded industry professionals. The top spot this year went to El Celler de Can Roca in Spain, with the runners up being Noma in Denmark, and Italy’s Osteria Francescana.
