    Restaurants 2022 later this year. The organisation will also publish the extended list of those ranked from 51st to 100th in the annual ranking for the first time

    May 2022 – 50 Best is pleased to announce two appointments as part of its Academy structure for Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, as well as the expansion of the number of voters across the region as a whole.

    Lucía Barrios will oversee the new region of Central America as an Academy Chair, recruiting voters from across Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama for the 2022 edition of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, and beyond. Based in Guatemala City, Lucia Barros is the director of Mister Menu, a digital platform and printed magazine that explores Central American gastronomy, ingredients and producers. She is also the creator of Nixtamal, which focuses on sustainability in Central American food culture, and of La Cosecha, a project that promotes sustainable development in Guatemala through coffee tourism.

    Marcela Baruch Mangino will work as Academy Vice Chair in the existing region of South America (South), focusing on finding suitable voters in Argentina and Uruguay. The overall region, which also includes Chile, Bolivia and Paraguay, will continue to be overseen by Academy Chair Daniel Greve. Based in Montevideo, Uruguay, Marcela is a journalist, sommelier and globetrotter. She has been food and wine editor of Galería, Uruguay’s leading weekly lifestyle magazine, since 2007 and also contributes to a variety of international publications. She is the co-author of three books and can be found blogging at Peregrina Gourmet.

    Other established Academy Chairs for Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants include: Valentina Ortiz Monasterio, overseeing Mexico; Paola Miglio, looking after South America (North), comprising Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela; and Rosa Moraes, who supervises the Brazil region.

    William Drew, Director of Content for 50 Best, says: “As we approach the 10th edition of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, we are excited to evolve our structure by increasing the number of voters overall, with a particular emphasis on ensuring greater voter representation from some of Latin America’s less gastronomically prominent countries. As part of that process, we are delighted to welcome two individuals who have huge expertise and integrity into our organization in the shape of Lucía Barrios and Marcela Baruch. They will bolster our already strong team in the region and help us build an even stronger culinary community for the future.”

    The next edition of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, will be hosted in late 2022. The specific location will be confirmed in due course. The plan is to return to a regular vote, post-pandemic, to create the annual ranking, though the list will be extended to include those ranked from 51st to 100th in Latin America, thereby celebrating a greater number and greater diversity of restaurants overall.

Academy system

In order to ensure the fair representation of the global restaurant scene, 50 Best now divides Latin America into 5 geographical regions. Each region has an Academy Chair appointed for their knowledge of their part of the restaurant world, their independence and their contacts across the gastronomic sector, with one region also benefiting from an Academy Vice Chair. The Academy Chairs and Vice Chair, all of whom take on the role on a voluntary (unpaid) basis, select their voting panels, ensuring a balanced range of chefs, restaurateurs, food writers, restaurant critics and well-travelled gourmets. These 300 voters will make up the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, which is gender- balanced. Regular rotation of Academy Chairs helps ensure the make-up of the Academy remains fresh.
