These Are The 2019 World's 50 Best Restaurant Award Winners

Drum roll, please...

The World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards just wrapped up in Singapore, and these are the big winners.

Last year's #3 pick Mirazur, which sits along the France-Italy border and boasts sweeping views of the Côte d'Azur, took the crown for world's best restaurant—the first time a French restaurant has claimed the top title since the list debuted in 2002.

In a close second, Noma—or should we say New Noma™. The Copenhagen hot spot re-opened in a new location with a rotating tasting menu, which is why it was eligible for this year's list.

Another notable highlight? New York City's Cosme, which came in at number 23 for the highest US ranking on the list.
