Michelin has awarded several restaurants in the Netherlands with new stars for 2014. Though Rotterdam must still do without a Michelin 3-star restaurant ever since chef Cees Helder left Parkheuvel, the city can’t complain about a lack of culinary venues. Two restaurants gained a second Michelin star: Fred and François Geurds aka FG Restaurant, bringing the total of Michelin 2-star eateries in the city to three (the third one being of course Parkheuvel). Rotterdam now also boasts two 1-star restaurants. Besides Amarone, that maintained its star, Michelin awarded the Wereldmuseum‘s dining place one as well. In the Rotterdam region, De Zwetheul in Schipluiden kept its two stars, while Perceel in Capelle aan de IJssel and Hermitage in Rijsoord kept their single stars. Congratulations!
