This year, the expansion from the usual 51-100 list to the 51-120 is in tribute and celebration of the 120th anniversary of S.

The USA is leading in volume with seven restaurants on the 51-120 list, which includes one new entry, and Japan and Spain are hot on the heels of USA with six restaurants each, including four new listings.
This year also showcases a strong female presence this year, with a notable new entry from Chef Clare Smyth’s restaurant, Core by Clare Smyth, entering the 66th place in London.Other female-led restaurants include Chef Elena Arzaks’s Arza in San Sebastian, Spain; Chef Pim Techamuanvivit’s Nahm in Bangkok, Thailand; and Chef Helena Rizzo’s Maní in São Paulo, Brazil.

William Drew, Director of Content of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, comments: “This year’s 51-120 list marks the most expansive representation of geographic diversity we’ve seen during the 18 years that 50 Best has been celebrating culinary excellence. Restaurants from world-renowned countries as well as lesser-known destinations are voted for and will be acknowledged at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards in Singapore on 25th June. The advent of S.Pellegrino’s landmark anniversary marked the ideal opportunity for us to extend the list for one year only. We hope to see as many of them as possible again next year.”
