Ten restaurants in the Netherlands have been awarded a new Michelin star. A nice boost for the hospitality industry after a difficult year. Michelin’s inspectors went out for dinner in the restaurants before and between lockdowns and their ratings are based on that visit. New initiatives from the restaurants, such as take-out menus, are not counted in the ratings.
There are celebrations at the Amsterdam restaurants Wils and Daalder: they both received their first star, and Restaurant 212 received two stars. There are even more new stars for: De Nieuwe Winkel in Nijmegen, Meliefste in Wolphaartsdijk, Heemstede Castle in Houten, Zeezout in Rotterdam, Pieters Restaurant in Bergambacht and Tilia in Etten-Leur.
There are currently two three-star restaurants in the Netherlands, eighteen two-star restaurants and 93 one-star restaurants.
