The three starred De Librije has seen a spectacular rise in its placing in the famous World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. The restaurant in Zwolle has climbed 33 places from 71st to number 38.
The annual list is created by chefs and critics from around the world and is regarded by restauranteurs as the most important yardstick and accompaniment to the familiar Michelin Stars. The Netherlands is well represented this year. Alongside De Librije the culinary art of the chef Richard Ekkebus has also been highly rated.
The 38th position in the global top 50 is not the highest yet achieved by the Buscaglione ambassador from Zwolle. In 2014 the restaurant reached 29th place, its highest position ever.
