Santiago Lasta's Michelin-starred Mexican restaurant KOL has entered The World's 50 Best Restaurants longlist, which was revealed this morning (5 July) ahead of its annual awards ceremony later this month.

KOL is one of three UK restaurants, all located in London, to have made the 51-100 list for 2022, and also the country's only new entry, coming in at number 73. 

Shoreditch favourite Lyle’s drops out of the World's 50 Best list, having featured in it since 2018, to come in at number 54; while Tomos Parry’s Brat, also in Shoreditch, ranks at number 81, having first entered the 50 Best longlist last year​.

This year's 51-100 list features 20 new entries from 15 different cities. In total it includes restaurants in 22 territories across six continents, with the addition of new entries from the Middle East, not previously included in last year’s list. The highest new entry in the longlist is Trèsind Studio, Dubai, UAE at number 57. 

“The 51-100 list this year recognises a broader range of destinations than we have ever seen before,” says William Drew, director of content for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

“We’re thrilled to see 20 new entries join the list for the first time. This growth is great to witness as the gastronomic world continues to recover and rebuild following the huge challenges faced during the pandemic.”

Jeremy Chan and Iré Hassan-Odukale's Ikoyi, which ranked at number 87 on last year's 50 Best longlist​ and was also named as the American Express One To Watch​ by 50 Best in 2021, doesn't feature on this year's 51-100 list. Core by Clare Smyth and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal also aren't included, having ranked at number 64 and 65, respectively, last year.

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, will be announced at a live ceremony at Old Billingsgate market in the City of London on Monday 18 July, and will also be streamed live on the 50 Best Facebook and YouTube channels.

KOL's entry into The World's 50 Best longlist comes after Lastra was named a 'Hospitality Pioneer' in the second edition of The World's 50 Best group's 50 Next list​ last month.
