Seven Spanish restaurants in World's 50 Best
22 June 2018 @ 00:15

LUXURY Girona eatery El Celler de Can Roca is a step closer to reclaiming its world number one throne after rising to second this year behind Italy's Osteria Francescana, based in Modena, north-west of Venice.

This year's World's 50 Best Restaurants – featured annually in the British magazine Restaurant – includes seven in Spain, with four of them having dropped several places in the ranking.

Commonly known as the Oscars of the culinary world and the biggest foodies' prizegiving on earth, the awards were presented this week at the Euskalduna Palace in Bilbao.

El Celler de Can Roca (first picture) has crept up to number two from its third place in 2017, ahead of France's Mirazur but still not yet a match for Massimo Bottura's world-beating premises in Modena.

Fourth this year is previous winner Eleven Madison Park in New York, run by chef Daniel Humm, who also took the Best Restaurant in North America prize.

Thailand's Gaggan Restaurant came fifth and two in Perú – Central and Maido – came sixth and seventh respectively, followed by Restaurant Arpège in France at number eight.

In total, Spain has three restaurants in the top 10 – the Asador Etxebarri rotisserie in Axpe in the Basque province of Vizcaya, the capital of which is Bilbao, only just making it after dropping from number four in 2017, whilst San Sebastián's Mugaritz sits at number nine, the same as last year.
