The World's 50 Best Restaurants is a list that names the 50 best restaurants in the world. For years, Mexican chefs have been part of the list, and 2019 is no exception.

This year, five Mexican restaurants are on the list. Four are located in Mexico and one in New York.

Besides being named as the #12 best restaurant in the world, Pujol was also named as the best restaurant in North America.

The organization describes Enrique Olvera's cuisine as a contemporary take on traditional  Mexican cuisine and credits chef Olvera with “proving that rustic Mexican flavors deserve as much attention as any other haute cuisine in the world.”
