11 new restaurants in Belgium have been credited with one star and La Duree has become the 17th restaurant to be awarded with two stars in Belgium and Luxembourg. There are now a total of 16 two-star restaurants in Belgium.
There are no new three-star restaurants to make the Guide, but De Karmeliet in Bruges, Hertog Jan in Bruges and Hof van Cleve in Kruishoutem all retain theirs.
Luxembourg did not receive any new stars this year but its ten one-star establishments kept their rating and its single two-star restaurant, Mosconi, kept them also.
The 2013 Belgian and Luxembourg Michelin Guide is on sale from today.
