Ten new Michelin star restaurants
In the latest Michelin restaurant guide, a further 10 restaurants in Belgium have received one star status.

In the new Michelin restaurant guide Belgium's three three-star restaurants keep their status, while at the same time ten new restaurants received one star. Two restaurants managed to climb to two stars, including La Durée in Izegem (West Flanders).

The restaurants that have been confirmed in the top category are De Karmeliet (chef: Geert Van Hecke) and Hertog Jan (chef: Gert De Mangeleer), both located in Bruges, and the Hof van Cleve (Kruishoutem, chef Peter Goossens, small photo).

Two new restaurants have been listed with two stars behind their name: L'Air du Temps (Liernu, Wallonia) and La Durée in Izegem, West Flanders. "The chef - Angelo Rosseel - managed to further develop his kitchen by combining classic dishes with modern techniques", the jury explained. Belgium and Luxembourg boast a total of 17 two-star restaurants.
