Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers is all set to host the celebrated Middle East and North Africa’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards Ceremony on February 7. The first edition is an exciting extension of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants which, through a structured voting procedure, bestows annual rankings to the world’s top restaurants.
Now, the 19 countries that make up the Middle East and North Africa will participate in their own awards ceremony which will celebrate gastronomy and reveal the region’s 50 best restaurants at the VIP gathering in the Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers.
One of the city’s most iconic culinary hotels, Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers is home to 12 award-winning restaurants and bars, such as VaKaVa, SOLE and Li Beirut. Some highlights of the landmark event that runs from February 4 to 8 include a #50BestTalks MENA: United Through Food, a thought-leadership forum; live chef-led 50 Best Masterclasses; and a series of dining events helmed by international and local chefs.
