One of the top eateries in Amersfoort says it no longer wants its Michelin star. The owners of Blok’s Restaurant, which was first awarded its star in 2013, will close permanently on December 29 so the owners can start over with a new restaurant.

Marco and Ingeborgh Blok will open their new restaurant, MEI, at the same Krommestraat where Blok’s Restaurant is shutting its doors. “It must be greener, more organic, more sustainable, more open, more accessible, and freer,” they told AD. They plan to use natural, seasonal ingredients presented in a less rigid menu than before.

Three Michelin star restaurant De Leest in Vaassen is closing its doors 17 years after opening, owners Jacob Jan Boerma and Kim Veldman announced. They will start a new culinary adventure with the launch of a concept restaurant in Amsterdam early next year, RTL Nieuws reports.

The couple plans to spend more time with their four-year-old son, Senne. "I've never been to a zoo or amusement park with him," Boerma told the broadcaster. "I also really want my wife to be able to put that little man to bed more than once per week."
