Placing establishments from across six continents on the global map and celebrating diverse cuisines, the 50 Best list is created through a voting system. Over 1,000 experts in the fields of gastronomy and hospitality, globally known chefs, food connoisseurs, writers and journalists serve as the voting panel. This year’s extended list features acclaimed restaurants from over 22 countries and debut entries from destinations including Mexico, the UAE and France.
