Well, he’s done it again. After landing at #32 in last year’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, Ben Shewry has climbed up 12 spots with Attica hitting #20 in the 2018 awards ceremony.
Unfortunately, as announced last week, Birregurra’s Brae slipped out of the top 50 but still sits comfortably inside the top 100 at #58.
This year’s placing marks the highest spot for Attica after it debuted at #21 back in 2013. 2018 #1 ranked restaurant Eleven Madison Park popped down a couple of rungs to #4, with Massimo Bottura back to reclaim the #1 spot with Modena’s Osteria Francescana.
Interestingly the restaurant that landed at #5—Gaggan in Bangkok—has a menu entirely written in emoji.
