World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 announced

Restaurants have been named in the annual World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, announced at a ceremony in London on 18 July 2022.

Two of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants are located in London: The Clove Club, a British restaurant based in Shoreditch Town Hall, and run by Scottish chef Isaac McHale (see website) took the 35th spot; and a brand new entry to the list – global gastronomic restaurant Ikoyi, based in St James, and led by Jeremy Chan and Iré Hassan-Odukale (see website), came in at number 49.

Actor and foodie Stanley Tucci (who else?) hosted the awards, which honour gastronomic excellence from 24 territories around the world, at the historic Old Billingsgate market in London.

The grand winner, taking the Number One spot from Noma, was Copenhagen’s Geranium, led by chef Rasmus Kofoed, named the World’s Best Restaurant of 2022.

The awards are voted for 1,080 international restaurant industry experts and well-travelled gourmets who make up The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy.

William Drew, Director of Content for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, said: “We are delighted to announce the list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 and to celebrate Geranium as the new No.1. Rasmus Kofoed, Søren Ledet and their team have created an unforgettable dining experience, taking seasonal cooking to superlative heights and delivering precise, beautiful and elegant food that combines art and flavour alongside a ground-breaking drinks programme. Geranium has cemented its status as a global culinary destination and a much-deserved winner of the coveted title, The World’s Best Restaurant 2022, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna. It is also very exciting to recognise this diverse list of restaurants spread across five continents and to see this vibrant culinary community coming together to celebrate in London.”
