This year, two top dining venues in Hong Kong clinched spots on the prestigious list. The Chairman secured its spot at number 26, and Wing made its first appearance on the global roundup and landed at number 20. Additionally, the two restaurants also received individual awards. The Chairman received the Highest Climber Award after it surpassed 24 places from its rankings last year, and Wing was appointed as the Highest New Entry, just months after receiving the Highest Climber in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants earlier this year. 

This year’s special awards include Paris’ Nina Métayer as the Best Pastry Chef Award, Janaína Torres from São Paolo as the Best Female Chef Award, and Lima-based Mitsuharu ‘Micha’ Tsumura as the recipient of Estrella Damm Chefs’ Choice Award. Pablo Rivero from Buenos Aires' Don Julio was chosen as Beronia World’s Sommelier Award, and Niel Perry from Sydney’s Margaret received the Woodford Reserve Icon Award in honour of four decades of experience in the restaurant industry.
