The 12forward app lets you navigate “food forward” and keep up with innovative restaurant scenes around the globe. We will identify the truly cutting-edge eateries in the world’s most advanced culinary cities and outline the progress of gastronomy by explaining what these restaurants are creating.

We call it 12forward by White Guide as it will list the 12 eateries in each chosen city that at any given time represent the very forefront of gastronomy – ranging from fine dining restaurants to holes in the wall – the must-visit places for any passionate "gastromad". The lists will be continuously updated; a new entry will knock an older one off. 

12forward is an initiative from White Guide, the Stockholm-Copenhagen based restaurant guide that has been a major driver of the Nordic culinary evolution for more than a decade. We have engaged leading food writers worldwide to relentlessly test and review new entries to the scene. They will identify each restaurant’s claim to fame; what’s really forward, the main reasons to go and what to look out for. The entries will be assessed according to White Guide’s 100 point score system.

The App is completely open and free during the launch period. We will continuously add new cities and eventually cover 30-40 cities worldwide.
