The World Emerging eateries: the top 50 April 29, 2013 9:55 pm by Barney Thompson

Natalie Whittle, of FT Weekend, reports that a gastronomic boom in emerging economies has propelled restaurants from Peru, Brazil and Mexico up the rankings in a prestigious annual list of the best places to eat in the world. The highest riser in the latest S. Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, compiled by Restaurant magazine, is Astrid y Gaston from In at number one: Joan Roca of El Celler de Can Lima, which jumped 21 paces to number 14. And Roca (Getty) if you’d never thought of Lima as a gastroparadise, think on this: it now has the same number of eateries on the list as London. As for top spot, Copenhagen’s Noma, which has been at number one for three years running, was finally knocked off its perch by the Spanish restaurant El Celler de Can Roca, self-styled purveyor of “emotional cuisine” run by the Roca brothers. Since many of The World’s readers are the jet-setting type – and, dare we say it, the type that likes to chalk off another long lunch at the planet’s finest restaurants – we supply the top 50 below.
