DE LIBRIJE Gets Three Stars; BRUNEAU Demoted

cabrales | Jan 27, 2004 09:28 AM

The 04 Red Guide including Belgium demotes Bruneau (near Brussels) to two stars!!

However, the same edition elevates De Librije in Zwolle, near Amsterdam, to three stars!! Now, The Netherlands has two three-stars.

I don't believe Bruneau is a strong three-star, but would not have demoted it. In my assessment, Bruneau was stronger than Comme de Chez Soi and not necessarily worse than De Karmeliet. A coucou de Malines (special chicken with very tender white meat) dish with a duo of truffled sauces was quite good at Bruneau.
