Michelin guide Belgium and Luxembourg 2016

This morning Michelin announced the results of the 2016 Belgium and Luxembourg guide. The guide will go on sale on 16 December 2015.

Sergio Herman's The Jane in Antwerp has been awarded a second Michelin star. Also promoted to two stars in the 2016 guide is d'Eugenie à Emilie in Baudour and La Villa in the Sky in Brussels. Belgium now has 20 two-star restaurants, the same number as the Netherlands.

The number of three-star restaurants in Belgium remains at 3, De Karmeliet in Bruges (chef: Geert Van Hecke), Hertog Jan in Zedelgem (near Bruges, chef: Gert De Mangeleer) and Hof Van Cleve in Kruishoutem (chef: Peter Goossens). De Karmeliet has now held three Michelin stars for 20 years, however, just last month Geert Van Hecke announced that he will be closing De Karmeliet in 2016.

The one-star category counts 8 newcomers in Belgium this year and 2 in Luxembourg:

  • Alexandre in Brussels
  • Bistro Du Nord in Antwerp
  • dEssensi in 's-Gravenwezel (near Antwerp)
  • Danny in Maasmechelen. The restaurant used to be located in Rekem but since June 2015 the restaurant is housed in the Terhills hotel in Maasmechelen (near Maastricht). Chef Chef Danny Vanderhoven has held a Michelin star since the 2013 guide.
  • Alain Bianchin in Jezus-Eik (near Brussels) 
  • Le Pilori in Ecaussinnes (some 50km outside of Brussels)
  • Le Comptoir de Marie in Mons (European Capital of Culture 2015).
  • Philippe Fauchet in Saint Georges sur Meuse (near Liège)
  • Ristorante Favaro in Esch zur Alzette
  • Guillou Campagne in Schouweiler
Seven restaurant have lost their star. The 2016 guide counts 106 one-star restaurants in Belgium and 11 in Luxembourg.

The results of the 2016 Bib Gourmand Benelux guide (Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands) were announced by Michelin last month. In the 2016 edition of the Benelux guide Belgium has 169 entries (28 new) and Luxembourg has 15 (5 new).
