The list of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014 was presented in an emotional ceremony held on September 3rd, along with 17 individual awards for chefs and restaurants across the region.
The ceremony – held in Lima, Peru, and organised by William Reed Business Media, the people behind The World’s 50 Best Restaurants – was attended by chefs, critics and leaders of opinion in the restaurant industry in the region. The event centred around the announcement of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014, sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna.
Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014 celebrated the performance of Peruvian restaurant Central, which earned the title of The S.Pellegrino Best Restaurant in Latin America, climbing three places from last year. Central, under the leadership of chef-owner Virgilio Martínez, was also named The S.Pellegrino Best Restaurant in Peru.
An array of diverse features have earned Central this important recognition: from original appetizers such as pisco sour with coca leaves and entrées like tiradito served with tiger’s milk ceviche, to the restaurant’s decoration and urban orchard, home to a wide range of produce and continuous experiments with new fruit, herb and vegetable varieties.
Second position on the list was taken by Astrid y Gastón, also from Peru, while D.O.M. and Maní, both from Brazil, were ranked in third and fourth place respectively; Chilean restaurant Boragó placed fifth. Boragó and D.O.M. were presented with The S.Pellegrino Best Restaurant in Chile and The S.Pellegrino Best Restaurant in Brazil awards respectively.
Finally, the S.Pellegrino Best Restaurant Awards by country were given to: Pujol in Mexico (No.6 in the list); Tegui in Argentina (No.9); Parador La Huella in Uruguay (No.17); Alto in Venezuela (No.18); Gustu in Bolivia (No.32); and Criterion in Colombia (No.39).
