Three new two-star restaurants added to Michelin Dutch list

The Netherlands has three new two star restaurants in the latest Michelin guide, taking the total to 21.

Julemont, housed in a Limburg castle and Flore, the new restaurant in Amsterdam’s hotel De L’Europe Hotel – are both debutants on the list with two stars. De Nieuwe Winkel in Nijmegen, where the cooking is ‘practically vegan’, has gone up from one to two stars.

A further 10 restaurants have been given one star, while eight lost theirs, so there are now 94 one star restaurants in the country. Four of the new one-star restaurants are in Amsterdam.

De Librije in Zwolle and Inter Scaldes in Zeeland remain the only two establishments in the Netherlands with the prestigious three stars.

De Librije’s chef Johnnie Boer said during the ceremony in Amsterdam that is time the Netherlands had another three-star restaurant. The third, De Leest in Vaassen, closed its doors in 2019 because the owners wanted to spread their wings.
