Winning restaurant Maido, famous for ingeniously fusing Peruvian and Japanese cuisine, also emerged as the best restaurant in Peru at the Summum Awards 2023, and its sommelier, Florencia Rey, was named Latin America's Best Sommelier.

“I celebrate the power of working together, and I love seeing Latin American countries showcasing their local cuisines and putting our region on the world map,” Micha expressed during the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurant 2023 ceremony. “This has clearly been a top year for Latin America, and 2024 will be another beautiful year for this wonderful continent.”

The eight other restaurants named to the ranking are:
- Kjolle (#7), led by chef Pía León, named World's Best Female Chef.
- Mayta (#10), also ranked 47th in The World's 50 Best Restaurants.
- Mérito (#13), a restaurant that combines Peruvian and Venezuelan cuisine.
- Osso (#33), a Lima favorite for its meat cuts.
- Mil Centro (#39), a culinary project in Moray (Cusco) that was named World’s Best Gastronomic Experience at this year’s World Culinary Awards.
- La Mar (#42), acknowledged as the best cevichería in Lima by the local Summum 2023 awards.
- Rafael (#46), owned by renowned chef Rafael Osterling.
- Cosme (#50), a restaurant making its debut on the list.
