#OnTheRadar: These Are The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023

Valencia, the birthplace of paella, played host to this year’s unveiling ceremony of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. 

The number one restaurant for 2023, Central, has always been highly ranked and one of RADARLIST’s favourites. So this year’s announcements were extra sweet music to our ears. Big congrats to Disfruta as well, which has climbed up a notch from last year’s #3.

We are also proud of Bangkok’s own Le Du and Gaggan Anand, which have made it to the list at #15 and #17 respectively. Many restaurants in the host country also snatched a spot this year – Diverxo #3, Asador Etxebarri #4, and Quique Dacosta #20, to name a few.
