That year, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants brings its high-profile events to the Basque Country in partnership with the Government of Biscay for a five-day celebration attended by world-leading chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers, media and influencers, with local events open to the public throughout.

Spain has long been a global leader in gastronomy and the Basque region, in particular, has an incredibly rich gastronomic culture. The area around Bilbao and San Sebastian is famous for its high concentration of outstanding restaurants, alongside its renowned pintxos bars, making it one of the world’s finest food destinations. William Drew, Group Editor of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, says: “After recent editions of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants in New York and Melbourne, we could not be more thrilled to be returning to Europe to host our event program in Bilbao, one of the great food destinations of the world, in 2018.

The flagship ceremony announced the highly anticipated list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018 would take place at Bilbao’s imposing Euskalduna Centre on 19 June and included a glamorous red-carpet reception and post-awards celebration party. The star-studded evening was preceded by #50BestTalks, a culinary thought-leadership conference exploring food developments, restaurant trends and chefs’ stories. The 50 Best program also included a special art celebration at the world-famous Guggenheim Museum on the morning of 18 June.
