The Michelin Guide unveils the new award-winning establishments: a new three-star restaurant in Belgium

This Monday, the Michelin guide unveiled its 2022 awards for Belgium and Luxembourg.

The ceremony took place face-to-face after two years of health crisis. The director of the Michelin guide invited on stage the restaurateurs who were rewarded last year when they had discovered the results in a virtual way.

The inspectors of the guide have worked hard to draw up the new Belgian gastronomic horizon. Sixteen professionals were given a new star while others lost this award. This is the case of the restaurant Like home.
