Today, Michelin revealed its 2019 starred restaurant selections for Belgium and Luxembourg. Once again, the tire company behind the dining guides has added three new two-star restaurants to the list. This year, they include La Paix in Anderlecht, Belgium; La Table de Maxime in Our, Belgium; and Ma Langue Sourit in Luxembourg.
There are also seven new one-star restaurants on the list this year, six in Belgium and one in Luxembourg. Unsurprisingly, all of the new additions on the list serve some variation on refined European cuisine, including EED, helmed by 23-year-old chef Philippe Heylen, and Little Paris, which serves takes on classic bistro fare.
Just one restaurant maintained its three-star status this year: chef Peter Goosen’s Hof van Cleve, a tasting menu restaurant in Kruishoutem, Belgium. This means that Bruges restaurant Hertog Jan lost its three-star designation this year.
Overall, the guide shrunk in 2019. There are 139 starred restaurants in the guide, down from 144 last year. During the ceremony, Michelin also gave special recognition to two-Michelin-starred restaurant Comme Chez Sois, which has held at least one star since 1953.
