Israeli celebrity chef Moshik Roth retained two Michelin stars for his Amsterdam restaurant, renamed &Moshik, previously called Samhoud & Places, the organization announced at a ceremony on Monday evening.

Roth opened the restaurant in August 2012 at an investment approaching 2 million euros and broke the record by achieving Michelin stars just three months after opening. It wasn't even Roth's first Michelin award: his eatery t'Brouwerskolkje in Overveen, the Netherlands was awarded one star in 2006, three years after it opened, and another in 2009. Roth closed it down in 2012 and opened his new restaurant shortly later.
