    Hot Dinners was down in Aldwych this morning for the announcement of the location of 2018's World's 50 Best Restaurants. So the party location was Eneko at One Aldwych, chefs in attendance included Eneko Atxa from Azurmendi; it didn't take a genius to work out that the next location would be Bilbao. It's a great spot for the awards to return to Europe, having been to Australia and America for the past two years.

    The region has a good history for doing well

    And so, to another World's 50 Best List which has just been announced with a chef-filled black tie do in Australia.

First his London restaurant Dinner By Heston crept up 5 places in the list to 36. And then Heston himself picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award - a popular decision that

  • The World's 50 Best 2017 50-100 is revealed

    Yes, it's nearly that time again. The new World's 50 Best list is revealed next week - and that means we get a sneak peak today with the reveal of 51-100. 

    What does it mean for London on the list... well there's very little change. Lyles goes up (from 65 to 54), Hedone down (from 60 to 98) and St John doesn't move at all. So it's the very definition of "no surprises". Hopefully, there'll be more to see in the top 50 when the full list is revealed
