No one saw this coming. Comme Chez Soi, THE Belgian reference restaurant, an institution, has lost one of its three Michelin stars. A Belgian tragedy indeed. For years Comme Chez Soi kept its place at the top of Belgian restaurants, a well deserved 3 star Michelin status. However it seems that in the new 2007 Michelin Belenux Guide, recently presented in Ghent, Comme Chez Soi is losing one star.
Receiving only 19/20 (oh dear!) the restaurant now run by Lionel Rigolet lost a star. I do wonder if this will in any way affect the prices, the over-booking of the restaurant so I’ll finally get the chance to try the exquisite cuisine at Comme Chez Soi.
