Netherland’s New Michelin Stars

Michelin Logo Netherland’s New Michelin StarsWay to go, Netherland!

And that would be the shout of every food connoisseur in that country. And why shouldn’t they? Perhaps you haven’t heard of it, but Michelin had just awarded several restaurants there the honor of being part of the Michelin Guide’s Netherlands 2011 list of restaurants to go.

So serious are the chefs on this that failure to get one is a terrible experience. Even more so if you already have the star, but is stripped away from you. I knew I read in a report somewhere that a chef actually committed suicide when his restaurant lost the recognition.

The list is long but it include La Provence, in Driebergen-Rijsenburg; ML, in Haarlem; Kasteel Heemstede, in Houten; ’t Amsterdammertje, in Loenen aan de Vecht; De Burgemeester, in Montfoort in Linschoten; One, in Roermond; La Trinite, in Sluis; and De Groene Lantaarn, in Zuidwolde.

The Bib award means that the restaurant can serve a delicious meal for only $48. Getting that would mean that these will become venues to the tourists.
