Sky's the limit for chef at world's best eatery

Central Station | 27 Jun 2019

France's Mirazur restaurant - whose Argentine chef Mauro Colagreco draws inspiration from the sea, mountains and his own garden - was crowned the world's best by an influential trade list.

The accolade came just months after the 42-year-old was handed a third Michelin star, and was the first time a French eatery has triumphed in the World's 50 Best Restaurant list.

"I'm in the sky and I'm waiting to come back here," Colagreco said, as he collected his award for his eatery in the French Riviera town of Menton.

"I don't have words to explain it."

In second spot in the awards - which took place in Singapore - was Noma in Copenhagen, and third was Asador Etxebarri in Spain.

Gaggan in Bangkok was fourth, the highest ranked Asian restaurant. Fifth was Geranium in Copenhagen, and sixth was Central in Lima.
