Two San Francisco Restaurants Make the World’s 50 Best List for 2019

The restaurants join four other U.S. venues to be selected.

Dominique Crenn’s Atelier Crenn and Corey Lee’s Benu were chosen for this year’s Worlds 50 Best Restaurants list at a ceremony in Singapore in June. They ranked 35th and 47th respectively. The San Francisco restaurants are the only two California eateries to make the cut.

According to the Los Angeles Times, “The list, which debuted in 2002, actually includes 100 restaurants (and, for a tie-in with a sponsor, 120 this year); the top 50 are given most of the praise. Restaurants are chosen by more than 900 members of a worldwide restaurant group. Over the years, the awards have favored European restaurants, have mostly ignored female-run kitchens and much like the recent Michelin Guide, have failed to recognize restaurants in Los Angeles.”
