Michelin Announces 2014 Stars in Belgium, Luxembourg

New, 1 comment

Hot on the heels of similar announcements for New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Germany, the 2014 Michelin Guide to Belgium and Luxembourg has hit the shelves.

The big news is the inclusion of two new two-star restaurants: Bon-Bon in Brussels, with chef Christophe Hardiquest at the helm, and Bartholomeus, in Knokke-Heist, where the kitchen brigade is led by chef Bart Desmidt.

Not unexpectedly, the guide is once again Flanders-heavy, with 12 new one-star restaurants in the region. Wallonia gets an additional four one-stars as well, with two for Brussels. The dominant storyline here is Villa Lorraine's return to the one-star club. The restaurant is a bit of an institution in Belgium's capital.

All told, the 2014 Michelin Guide to Belgium and Luxembourg features a record 132 star-worthy restaurants (three three-star, 17 two-star, 112 one-star) and 155 Bib Gourmand restaurants, the designation that recognizes "high-quality restaurants that offer a complete three- course meal for no more than 35 euros". The three-star establishments – De Karmeliet in Bruges, Hof van Cleve in Kruishoutem and Hertog Jan in Sint-Michiels – remain unchanged from last year.
