Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants celebrated its fourth annual edition last week in Mexico City.
Here are the highlights according to Instagram.
1. Viva Mexico
The 50 Best festivities returned to Mexico City for a second – and final – year. (Stay tuned to find out where we're moving to in 2017.)
2. #50BestTalks: Latin Liquids
Mexico's own Enrique Olvera was among the brilliant speakers at our 10th #50BestTalks event, focusing on national drinks from across Latin America.
Chef de cuisine Olivier Deboise Mendez hit the spot with great canapés during #50BestTalks at J&G Grill at The St Regis Mexico City.
4. Chefs’ Feast
An outdoor photo call during a downpour in the middle of Mexico City did nothing to dampen spirits at the annual celebratory banquet.
5. Pin me
50 Best chefs on the list received a badge of honour at the awards ceremony.
6. Ciro's sombrero
Ciro Watanabe from Osaka, Santiago, brought a bit of humour to the awards ceremony.
7. Red Carpet

We were so happy to celebrate with some of our 50 Best Tastemakers – aren’t they a good-looking bunch?
