Local initiative in France to save restaurants distressed by Covid-19


In its issue of today, An Nahar wrote that as a result of Covid-19 crisis which hit the hospitality industry, the World’s 50 Best Restaurants organization decided not to grade competitors or publish the results of the competition for this year due to the coronavirus and all restaurants were declared winners. Instead, An Nahar reported, 50BestRestaurants decided to launch a fundraising auction initiative on July 3 to bid for gastronomic experiences in France in order to help restaurant whose businesses have been severely hit by the pandemic. In this respect, the director of World 50 Best Restaunts, Helene Pietrini told AFP that the auction is the biggest and unprecedented event including more than 130 bidders and will run from July 3-12. Many world chefs, she said, responded to proposals inspired by their life under lockdown. In addition, they will screen presentations from their star-rated restaurants. (An Nahar, July 3, 2020)
