Mirazur crowned world’s best restaurant

Mirazur crowned world’s best restaurant

By Cassandra Tanti - June 26, 2019

Monaco may be filled with Michelin star restaurants, but the title of ‘world’s best’ has just been clinched by Mirazur in Menton.

Located less than 10 kilometres from the Principality, Mauro Colagreco’s Mirazur has always been a favourite for people in Monaco. Now, it has taken top spot as ‘best restaurant in the world’ 2019, announced on Tuesday at a ceremony in Singapore.

Steadily ascending The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list since its debut at No.35 in 2009, Mirazur celebrates 10 years in the ranking by rising to No.1. The accolade coincides with the restaurant finally achieving the coveted three Michelin stars, as well as the beginning of a three-year renovation project involving a new dining room, extensions to the vegetable gardens and a more immersive dining experience.

The annual list is compiled by World’s 50 Best, an organisation that has been ranking restaurants across the globe since it was created in 2002.

For 2019, the rules were revised so that previous number one restaurants are not eligible to be considered again, for any spot on the list, instead going into the newly created Best of the Best category.

After undergoing a complete redesign and moving locations, Noma 2.0 was able to take second position on the list, despite the original restaurant holding top spot in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014.

Spain has three restaurants in the top 10, while Denmark and new hot culinary destination Peru each have two.
