Opening in Antwerp – With MOOY Bakery, the popular pink lunch spot ‘MOOY Food & Drinks’ is introducing a completely new concept across the street from the current store. Here they serve milkshakes, cupcakes, cake slices and fancy sweet & savory toasts! All sweet tooths can gather here! Owner Yana Lamon starts with one establishment, with the aim of being able to expand it later or even develop it as a franchise concept. The stairway to sweet treat heaven? You can climb it from this summer at the Lombardenvest 33 in Antwerp.

Looking at the images, the concept reminds us a bit of the very popular and Instagrammable EL&N cafes in London. And if MOOY Bakery will be as busy as this chain is in London, it can expand quickly! Nice to visit if you go shopping with friends in Antwerp. The cake slices look deliciously sweet!

  • THE NEST POP UPS - view dinner at the Boathouse

This summer, Luke Wasserman, Toby Neill and Johnnie Crowe, the team behind popular Hackney restaurant NEST and the recently opened restaurant FENN in Fulham, will celebrate seasonal British dining by launching a summer series of pop-up restaurants in rural locations across the UK.

Great idea for city restaurants? A paid team building in another surrounding? Might work for other restaurants as well and it’s great inspiration to work with local produce, who knows what you might take back to your menu in the city. We have seen a lot of initiatives of chefs working together to create food festivals, trading places or joining a team of chefs cooking in each other’s restaurants (The Grand Gelinaz Shuffle), but in this case the whole teams goes on an adventure in the summer. Inspiration for their guests to get to know the restaurant and for the team to have fun and get to know more about the local produce!
