The World’s 50 Best Restaurants is excited to announce that the 2023 edition of the annual gastronomic gathering will take place in the vibrant city of Valencia, Spain. After returning to London in 2022, the event, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, will head back on the road and make its way to the Mediterranean next year.
Valencia, known for its cutting-edge culture and stunning City of Arts and Sciences architectural complex, will be the host destination for 50 Best’s flagship series of culinary events. The city will welcome renowned chefs, restaurateurs, and culinary stars from around the world, as well as food-loving gourmets seeking a dose of gastronomic and cultural inspiration.
In addition to the awards ceremony, Valencia will be home to a series of 50 Best Signature Sessions where leading chefs will collaborate with local restaurants to create one-of-a-kind dining experiences. The public will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for these sessions, with booking details to be announced closer to the event.
The 50 Best program will also include an edition of the thought-leadership forum #50BestTalks and an educational event specifically for the region’s aspiring chefs and culinary students, featuring some of the food world’s most celebrated thinkers.
This move to Valencia follows recent editions of the global event in London, Antwerp, and Singapore, preceded by Bilbao, Melbourne, and New York as host cities. Get ready to experience the best of Spanish cuisine and culture next summer at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023 in Valencia.
