Wake up early enough at Restaurant Bootshaus and you may be in time to watch your lunch get speared, as local fishermen scour the surrounding lake for the day's catch. Or take a hike into the mountains of Salzkammergut and watchful eyes will be rewarded with wild herbs, vegetables and game, later to be found woven into your meal at Bootshaus that evening #offmapdestination #worldrestaurantawards

Diversity - The World Restaurant Awards

"Taste is a small fraction of what you put on a plate" ~ Christian Puglisi, Relæ. Whether it is in the kitchen or in the ecosystem, diversity should be celebrated not just as an aspiration for responsible restaurateurs but as a driver of creativity across the restaurant industry. #worldrestaurantawards

Behind a concrete door at the end of an unmarked alley in Hong Kong lies Godenya HK: a six-seater shrine to sake. Accompanying every course of the seasonal, mostly seafood menu is a perfectly tuned sake, served at the exact temperature to enhance specific notes reflected in the dish. #forwarddrinking #worldrestaurantawards

"We are all working towards a concept of South African cuisine, trying to establish something that is representative of who we are and where we are.

Stomach first, your mind later: RETROBOTTEGA are firm in the order they want you to enjoy their menu. For your stomach there are impeccable pasta dishes and a kitchen you can drop by all day, every day. For your mind there is the commitment to exploring the ethics of cooking through foraged herbs and vegetables collected with an ethnobotanist each week. #noreservationsrequired #worldrestaurantawards

"When I am done here I am going to spend time with my family, reflect, fish, garden, write, rest and get fit, both physically and mentally. I am not going to lie, I am a little bit tired." ~ Fäviken by Magnus Nilsson. After 10 years, #WRAlonglist Faviken will be running their last service at the end of this year. Magnus's statement reminds us that despite the fame lavished on successful restaurants, life behind the scenes can be relentless and often the decision to take a break is the right path forwards #worldrestaurantawards

"We serve a small, seasonal tasting menu, about seven courses, predominantly seafood, and then we enhance that with some indigenous pickings that we find seasonally around the village, wild herbs, succulent seaweeds." ~ Kobus Van der Merwe explains the inspiration behind Wolfgat, winners of #resaurantoftheyear at the #worldrestaurantawards

"The idea was just to try and present a dish the way the Romans cooked, 700 years before Christ. They used pig bladders to preserve and ferment ingredients, and we thought 'let's try and make pasta'." ~ Riccardo Camanini of Riccardo Camanini - Lido 84 on his #housespecial winning dish, cacio e pepe 'en vessie' #worldrestaurantawards

“I’m very happy for my team, and all the work we’ve done for the last 10 years, and the 30 years we’ve worked to arrive here. I’m very proud, because La Mere Brazier represents the spirit of French food. It’s the food of the past, but also the future, it always evolves." ~ Mathieu Viannay of Restaurant La Mère Brazier, winner of #EnduringClassic at the #Worldrestaurantawards

"The idea is noble and I hope that it stays the thing: the idea to step outside the box and be as inclusive as possible. And even being nominated will get awareness for these places. In the end, we decided it was about what establishment left the best feeling.” ~ Paul Carmichael, #WRAjudge at the #worldrestaurantawards

"I thought the awards were a start of something amazing. It shows how many absolutely amazing restaurants and food experiences that are missed. It really reminds us what’s important to us in F&B: celebrating journalism, food humanitarian efforts, restaurants, dining and drinking experiences, classics and new. I definitely think we’ve widened our food lens." May Chow, #WRAjudge at the #worldrestaurantawards

"We were already rewarded for being finalists, we did not expect to be in the last team, let alone take the title home. The way we treat people, the way we welcome them at our restaurants is really important part of the experience. For me, hospitality as a general concept is the key.” Rodrigo Oliveira of Mocotó Bar e Restaurante, winners of #NoReservationsRequired

"Any event, when they support our industry, I am a supporter. And they chose Paris, which was a great idea. It's a different kind of award - it's a new vision, with new restaurants, cuisines and atmospheres -- everything is different." ~ Alain Ducasse, winner of #Tattoofreechefoftheyear

"It’s the first award we’ve ever won, so it means the world to me and the team. We’re a bunch of gypsies who decided to settle down in Tokyo because we love Japan, we love the seasonality and we want to be inspired and a part of their food culture." Thomas Frebel of INUA, winner of #ArrivaloftheYear at the #Worldrestaurantawards

“This is an extraordinary honour for something that we have been working on for 20 years. It's an amazing recognition and a very unusual recognition of what we do and what we have been doing behind the scenes for such a long time. It's very touching." ~ Denis Cotter of Paradiso, Cork, winner of #collaborationoftheyear

“The negative images in the press make us forget that refugees are not only people who are fleeing war and persecution but are people just like you, like me. They have kids, they have talents and cultural heritage that must be preserved. A way to correct that bias is to speak directly to people’s taste buds" ~ Louis Martin on the inspiration behind Refugee Food Festival, winner of #EventoftheYear at the #worldrestaurantawards

“People often call me to say, ‘I’m going to London, Australia, wherever...I want to know where to eat.’ They always ask for one casual place, and also somewhere special. Until now, nobody has made a list like this.” ~ #WRAJudge Alex Atala presented the award for #NoReservationsRequired to fellow Brazilian Rodrigo Oliveira of Mocotó Bar e Restaurante at the #worldrestaurantawards

“It was a great honour just to be in a room full of my idols – people I grew up reading their books and studying their styles and just being influenced by all of them. It’s a crazy thing.” ~ Jordan Khan of Vespertine on winning #AtmosphereoftheYear at the #worldrestaurantawards

“It really feels incredible to be recognised, nominated, and to win an award for a project that we thought was just a little small idea, but turned out to be something much bigger, more important.” Lara Gilmore of Food for Soul, winner of #EthicalThinking at the #worldrestaurantawards

Wolfgat wins Restaurant of the Year

“Just making the longlist was incredibly overwhelming because I look up to all of the other restaurants that were nominated with us and we certainly didn’t feel worthy of being there, so this is a few steps of insanity above this, so I can’t quite put it in words. I think it’ll all sink in.” ~ Kobus van der Merwe of Wolfgat on winning #RestaurantoftheYear and #OffMapDestination at the #worldrestaurantawards
