The city of Buenos Aires will receive the top representatives in the culinary world on October 10 for the VII Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards.

The best restaurants in the region will all compete for a place in the Latin America list.
The Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards ceremony will feature famous chefs, media representatives and culinary luminaries from around the world. The event will be held at the Usina del Arte, an art space located at Agustín R. Caffarena 1, Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (CABA), Argentina.
Awards categories include the Sustainable Restaurant Award, the Chefs’ Choice Award, the Latin America’s Best Pastry Chef Award, and the Latin America’s Best Female Chef Award, among others.
Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list is produced by William Reed Business Media, publisher of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants lists. This new list is based on the opinions and experiences of more than 250 experts from the restaurant industry in Latin America.
