The World’s 50 Best Restaurants has announced the restaurants ranked 51st-120th in 2019, ahead of its annual awards ceremony on 25 June.

Four UK restaurants, all located in London, have made the longlist with Core by Clare Smyth a new entry in 66th​ position.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal (45th​ in 2018) and The Ledbury (42nd​ in 2018) have both dropped out of the top 50 this year, falling to 83rd​ and 64th​ position respectively.

St John also slipped down the rankings to 112th​ after placing 84th​ in 2018.

Mikael Jonsson’s Hedone (98th​ in 2018) is absent from the list following its closure on 1 June.​ Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck in Bray also does not feature after placing 74th​ last year, as it has joined the new ‘Best of the Best’ category​ alongside all the restaurants which have been voted No.1 in the event’s 17-year history.  

The 51-100 longlist has been expanded this year to mark the 120th​ anniversary of the event’s lead sponsor, S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna.

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants will announce its new top 50 list for 2019 at a ceremony in Singapore next week.
