Mark Sansom - 26/11/2019

A new search engine for expert-approved restaurants and bars is at your fingertips. Log on to 50 Best Discovery and explore the best restaurants and bars around the world

Today sees the launch of one of 50 Best’s biggest projects to date. For 17 years, the 50 Best brand has been compiling authoritative rankings based on the votes of its international network of experts. Until now, it has only revealed the restaurants and bars that received sufficient votes for them to be ranked – this is not the case anymore.

50 Best Discovery provides a deeper, richer library for people to draw on for eating and drinking inspiration as they traverse the world. Featuring more than 1,600 reviews of venues in 75 countries, each restaurant or bar on the new website has received votes from the 50 Best Academy, so users can be sure that they are expert-approved and tried and tested before making their booking.

All of the venues of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and The World’s 50 Best Bars lists are present, as well as Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Asia’s 50 Best Bars and Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants. However, the real interest comes from those unranked establishments which have never before been seen by followers of 50 Best.

The result is a more diverse range of expert-recommended restaurants and bars across the world, offering everything from emerging talent, great-value lunch spots and local haunts through to fine dining and fine drinking establishments.

Whether you are searching for the hottest back-street ramen bar in Tokyo, boundary-pushing fine dining in San Francisco, or the best martini in Madrid, 50 Best Discovery can give the chance for adventurous gourmets to explore hidden gems, secret spots and timeless classics, charting a new itinerary for culinary and cocktail adventures. Follow @50BestDiscovery for more ideas on how to use the new website and to discover exciting destinations all over the globe.

So fire up 50 Best Discovery today and start your own gastronomic adventure.

NB: To qualify, a restaurant or bar needs to receive a significant number of votes in the most recent round of polling for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants or The World’s 50 Best Bars, or appear on one of our other annual rankings. Restaurants and bars cannot apply to be part of 50 Best Discovery.
