World’s 50 Best Restaurants announces the list of 50 Next 2021

World’s 50 Best Restaurants, which has chosen the best restaurants and bars of the world every year for 20 years, has listed the stars of the gastronomy future with its 50 Next list. The organization has added young names under 35 from around the world to the list. A lively event will be held in Bilbao, Northern Spain in 2022 to celebrate the young names on both the 2021 and 2022 lists.

The names on the list encourage positive, sustainable, and visionary thinking and aim to represent the diversity of the global gastronomic scene. Those on the list are known for their contribution to the gastronomic ecosystem, as well as their potential for a significant positive change in the gastronomy field.

Accordingly, the list is divided into seven categories: Game-changing Producers, Tech Disruptors, Empowering Educators, Entrepreneurial Creatives, Science Innovators, Hospitality Pioneers, and Trailblazing Activists.
