The Michelin Guide gives out its stars in Brussels
The new edition of the Michelin Guide has chosen more than 1,500 hotels and restaurants from all comfort and price categories. Here are the winners in Brussels...

The 2015 Michelin stars are now known! Since Comme chez Soi has lost its third star, the capital of Europe still comes short of a three-star venue... Karmeliet in Brugge, Hof Van Cleve in Kruishoutem and Hertog Jan continue to have the upper hand in Belgian gastronomy.

2 Michelin Stars in Brussels

Christophe Hardiquest and his Bon-Bon rise up in the ranks, obtaining 2 of these sought-after stars. He joins the best of Brussels gastronomy: Comme chez Soi, Sea Grill and the Chalet de la Forêt.
