All is set for the announcement of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants of 2019, which will be revealed in Singapore on Tuesday, 25 June.

As has been the case for a number of years now, the event has broadened its scope to actually identify the top 100 restaurants globally as part of its full ranking, with the 51st to 100th eateries announced the week prior to the big day. This year, and to mark the 120th anniversary of 50 Best’s primary sponsor, S. Pellegrino, that long list has been extended to recognise 120 restaurants.

Named in the 50-120 band of the World’s Best Restaurants of 2019 was Victoria’s Attica (84th) and Brae (101st).

For Melbourne’s Attica, the position is a significant tumble from last year’s 20th placing. Chef Ben Shewry told Good Food the result was no surprise. “I’ve know about it for months. I am totally fine, totally tranquil about it.”

“We have never marketed or played any games trying to improve our position on the list. Wherever it falls we will accept,” Shewry said.

Brae, which is in the regional Victoria city of Birregurra, fell outside the top 100 too (only just), after breaking into the Top 50 for the first time (No.44) in 2018.

Other restaurants in the ‘long list’ included Selfie in Moscow, Russia (65th), Sud 777 in Mexico City (57th), Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in London (84th), La Cime in Osaka, Japan (93rd); Belon in Hong Kong (96th); L’Astrance in Paris, France (109th); and Atomix in New York, USA (119th).

Next week, 50 Best and S. Pellegrino will also be uniting to host a special culinary event as part of the festivities. The ‘Food Meets Future’ event will be held on 25 June in Singapore, and will see the current holder of The World’s Best Restaurant title, Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana, lead the discussion on topics such as the responsibility chefs have to help feed the hungry, a Q&A session with young cooks and more.
