The chefs will join members of The World's 50 Best Academy, sponsors, special guests and the world's press at The Guildhall in London on Monday (29 April) night to find out where their restaurant appears on the list, the annual snapshot of the opinions and experiences of over 900 international restaurant industry experts.
Special awards have already been granted to Nadia Santini who is this year's Veuve Clicquot Best Female Chef and Alain Ducasse, this year's Lifetime Achievement Award-winner, but all eyes and ears will be on finding out which restaurants have made the prestigious list and whether Noma in Denmark, number one for the last three years, retains the top spot for a fourth.
The awards, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna and organised by Restaurant magazine, are now in their 11th year.
Restaurant magazine’s editor William Drew said: “Each year we look forward to announcing the date of the awards as it marks the beginning of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2013 season.
“We strive to ensure the results reflect the current global dining scene, with criteria enabling members to vote far and wide from small, unknown restaurants in secluded regions to the best known restaurants in the world.
“We are proud of the integrity upheld by our Academy and have no doubt the 2013 list will prove to be as exciting and inspiring as ever.”
BigHospitality's news team will be at the awards keeping you up to date with all the news from the event and will have the all-important list published as soon as the ranking is announced. You can also follow our coverage via our social media channels Twitter and Facebook.
