World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019 by San Pellegrino – Where did the UK come?

The world’s very best restaurants were celebrated by San Pellegrino on Tuesday 25th June at a grand ceremony held in Singapore. It was the sponsor’s 18th annual ceremony where the coveted awards are given by a panel of over 1,000 culinary experts as well as a structured and audited voting procedure. ‘The World’s Best 50 Restaurants‘ provides a snapshot of some of the best destinations for unique culinary experiences, in addition to being a barometer for global gastronomic trends.

Two UK destinations, both in East London, have made into the Top 50: The Clove Club in at No. 27 and Lyle’s at No. 33. Whereas, in a separate list of San Pellegrino’s Top 51 – 100 published last week also included The Ledbury, London W11 at No. 64, Core by Clare Smyth, London W11 at No. 66 (also Clare was voted Best Female Chef in the World in 2018), and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London SW1 at No. 84.
