Some of the top chefs from across the globe have descended on Melbourne to find out if Massimo Bottura’s restaurant Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy, will hold on to the number one spot for a second time.
Last year three UK restaurants made the list, The Clove Club in Shoreditch (26), Notting Hill’s The Ledbury (14) and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in Knightsbridge (45).
The awards will be announced at 8pm local time (11am GMT), and will be live streamed online here.

Keep an eye on BigHospitality for the full list and breakdown of the winners later this morning.
