Mediterranean venue Mirazur has taken the No. 1 spot at the World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards in Singapore -- an event considered the Oscars of the fine dining world.

World s 50 Best Restaurants 2019

Run by Argentinian-Italian chef Mauro Colagreco, Mirazur is located in Menton, France, close to the Italian border. The victory adds to a remarkable year that began with Mirazur being awarded its third Michelin star.

Colagreco and his team took to the stage at Marina Bay Sands with a banner stitched from the flags of the nations that have shaped them: France, Argentina, Italy and Brazil.

France "allows me to express myself," Colagreco told the crowd, but "cuisine is able to cross all kinds of borders."

Later, after reflecting a bit on the honor, Colagreco, in a post-awards press conference, said "It's incredible, I don't have words to explain - it's something so special, all the work, all the love of my team to achieve this award is something so special for us for me and Julia (his wife)."
