Three Spanish restaurants were ranked among the leading vegetable restaurants in the world, coming in at 1st, 11th and 23rd place.

Chef Xavier Pellicer took first place, and his eponymous locale was officially named the Best Vegetable Restaurant in the World. The distinction comes from the We’re Smart Green Guide, which highlights restaurants from all over the globe, and is part of the competition entitled “We’re Smart Think Vegetables! Think Fruit!” A ceremony was held in Basel on May 7th. Pellicer’s locale was also named Best Restaurant in Spain.

Pellicer’s eponymous restaurant, in Barcelona’s Eixample neighborhood, prides itself on serving healthy, natural food. Only the freshest ingredients are used and everything is perfectly seasoned and utterly delicious. His locale expertly combines simplicity, sophistication and authenticity.

Pellicer may have taken first place, but he’s not the only Spaniard in the spotlight. Coming in at 11th place is Ricard Camarena, whose restaurant also takes his name and is in Valencia, on Spain’s east coast. The chef is known for his delicious eggplant creations, and he’s considered a vegetable chef pioneer in Spain. And coming in 23rd is Rodrigo de la Calle’s restaurant El Invernadero, which serves one-of-a-kind vegetable haute cuisine.
