Three Michelinstars for Zilte

Viki Geunes of Zilte in Antwerp received the highest honor from Michelin. “I’ve been in the industry for 25 years and of course, I also feel that young ambitious generation emerging. About a year and a half ago, we decided to make a significant effort again. With success.”

“At last.” That was the sentiment when Michelin hung the third star on the facade of Zilte yesterday afternoon. It took quite a while after Hertog Jan in 2012 for us to have a new three-star restaurant, but also because for Geunes himself, it had been fourteen years since he earned his second star. “Indeed, it’s been a while. And getting a third star was always the ambition!”
