France’s Mirazur crowned world’s best restaurant

Mirazur, on the French Riviera, was crowned No.1 at the World's 50 Best Restaurants awards ceremony held in Singapore on Tuesday (June 25), lauded for its fresh and seasonal cuisine.

The three-Michelin-starred restaurant in Menton climbed to the top from third last year, replacing Italy’s Osteria Francescana.

Mirazur’s menu, which includes dishes like salt-crusted beetroot from the garden with caviar cream, is inspired by the sea, the mountains and produce from its own gardens, which cascade over three levels.

Its Argentine-born chef Mauro Colagreco said he felt like being “on the sky” after winning the award. He and his team accepted the prize carrying a banner that combined the flags of Argentina, France, Brazil and Italy.

Mexican chef Daniela Soto-Innes took home the award for the World’s Best Female Chef 2019.

Launched in 2002, the 50 Best list has grown in prominence to rival the long-established Michelin star system. The ceremony in Singapore is the first to be held in Asia.
