In partnership with Tourism Australia, the event will see world-leading chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers and media gather to celebrate the world’s best in gastronomy on April 5.

“After 14 years hosting the awards event in London, we decided to take The World’s 50 Best Restaurants on a global tour, kicking off in New York in June 2016,” said The World’s 50 Best Restaurants group editor William Drew.

“Now we could not be more thrilled to be moving to Melbourne, one of the great food cities of the world, in 2017.

“Come April next year, Australia will undoubtedly be the place to be for those passionate about great food and inspired restaurants.”

Melbourne Food and Wine Festival has agreed to align its dates with event and will now run from March 31 to April 9.

Victoria’s Acting Minister for Tourism and Major Events Philip Dalidakis said Melbourne is honoured to be the third city in the world to host the event.

“Melbourne’s food, bar and coffee culture has a depth and diversity that is second to none,” he said.

“Our talent is pioneering, and our natural landscapes and urban centres provide the backdrop to outstanding culinary experiences.”
