This year, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy was expanded to include 1,040 voters worldwide, increasing the number of overall voters by 52 per cent.

Each member casts 10 votes for their best restaurants – up from seven votes last year. Of the 10, at least four must be for restaurants outside the voter’s home region.

The top 50 restaurants will be unveiled at an awards ceremony in Melbourne on April 5. Last year’s ceremony was held in New York City.
