The Lekker 500 and the restaurants in Brabant

Today the Lekker500 for 2020 is released. Every year the Dutch magazine announces the 500 best restaurants in the Netherlands. I went to the release party and on this page I’m telling you all about the new Lekker500 and the restaurants in Brabant that are listed this year. As I’m born and raised in Brabant, I always feel extra proud of the restaurants in Noord Brabant who made it to the list.
