The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, will be hosting its renowned awards ceremony in New York City in 2016, as part of a global location strategy. noma_winners_2014_hpSince the list was created in 2002, London has been the host of 14 successful editions of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, but the organisers now feel the time is right to make the event truly global. William Drew, Group Editor of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, said: “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants is a truly global brand. We want to reflect this not just in the restaurants we celebrate but also in the locations of the events themselves. Through the global movement of our events we will continue to unite, discover and celebrate the diverse gastronomic talents and communities across the globe. We are extremely excited to be heading to New York, undoubtedly one of the planet’s most exhilarating dining destinations, to host the 2016 edition of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards.” As previously announced, the upcoming edition of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, will take place in Mexico City on September 23rd, 2015. Mexico is famed for its rich, elaborate and varied culinary traditions spanning the entirety of the region. Mexican cuisine was inscribed in 2010 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, owned by William Reed Media, will seek to relocate its distinguished World event, alongside the regional events in Latin America and Asia, every two to three years. The World’s 50 Best Restaurants is an annual celebration of global gastronomy that recognises restaurants around the world for their culinary prowess. Not only do those who feature on the list hail from across the globe, but guests who attend the awards ceremony travel far and wide from Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.
