The William Reed organization’s Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants brand has for the first time created a list of honorable mentions; restaurants that did not make it into the top 50. To this end, it has created a list of restaurants that gathered enough votes by judges to rank between 51 and 100.
William Reed said in a statement that the 51-100 list, presented in association with American Express, aims to shine a spotlight on the diverse culinary cultures of the region before the official list of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, is released in an event on 15 November in Mérida, Yucatán, México.
Colombian restaurants on the 51 to 100 list include
- Prudencia in Bogotá
- Humo Negro in Bogotá
- X.O. in Medellín
- Harry Sasson in Bogotá
- Salvo Patria in Bogotá
The 50 Best organization says it works with professional services consultancy Deloitte as its official independent adjudication partner to help protect the integrity and authenticity of the voting process and the resulting list of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022. The Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy is comprised of approximately 300 regional voting members, and is divided into five regions: Mexico, Central America, South America (North), South America (South), and Brazil.
Each region has voters made up of journalists, food critics, chefs, restaurateurs and gourmands. In 2022, each member submitted 10 votes on what they considered their best dining experiences of the previous 18 months – at least three of those votes must go to restaurants outside their own country (Academy members unable to travel internationally voted only for seven restaurants in their own country).
