The Danish establishment “Geranium”, led by chef Rasmus Kofoed in Copenhagen, was crowned Monday evening in London “best restaurant in the world 2022”, during the 20th anniversary of the influential “50 Best Restaurants” ranking. There are two Belgian restaurants among the top fifty ranked, in 23rd and 27th positions. The Peruvian restaurant “Central”, in Lima, comes second in this ranking of the 50 best restaurants in the world established by the British magazine specializing in Restaurant, the most coveted in world gastronomy.

Two Spanish restaurants follow, the Barcelona establishment “Disfrutar” (3rd) and the Madrid establishment “Diverxo” (4th).

This is the second consecutive year that a Danish restaurant has been crowned, “Geranium”, second in the “50 Best” last year, succeeding “Noma”.

Inspired by nature, its chef Rasmus Kofoed won the Bocuse d’or in 2011, and his establishment received the country’s first three Michelin stars in 2016.

Two Belgian restaurants are part of this closed group of the fifty best establishments. First of all “The Jane” in Antwerp, ranked 23rd, and which was still “only” 66th last year and 111th in 2019 (there was no ranking in 2020 due to the pandemic, NDRL). It is closely followed, in 27th position, by chef Peter Goossens’ “Hof Van Cleve”, located in Kruishoutem, still 36th in 2021.

The Colombian Leonor Espinosa also received the prize for the “best female chef in the world”, succeeding the Peruvian Pía León. His restaurant Leo, in Bogota, ranks 48th.

“50 Best” has been awarded since 2002 by 1,080 “independent experts” (chefs, specialist journalists, restaurant owners, etc.) who rate their experiences over the past 18 months under the aegis of the “Restaurant” magazine of the British press group William Reed.

Distributed in 27 regions of the world, with 40 voters each, they can vote for 10 restaurants, including at least three outside their region.

The ceremony, originally scheduled in Moscow, was relocated to London in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February.
