Restaurant Renato’s has officially opened in the Dutch coast city of Bloemendaal aan Zee. With its family approach, the thin ‘Roman style’ pizzas, extensive choice of antipasti and high quality ingredients, Renato’s has already conquered many hearts in establishments elsewhere in the country. In Bloemendaal aan Zee, Renato’s found a place that had long been on the owners wish list: a location that also offers space for large family dinners, weddings and events and can be combined with a wonderful night’s sleep in Poort Beach Boutique Apartments. Add to that a magnificent terrace overlooking the sea, and you have the perfect recipe for that vacation in your own country.

Enjoying Italian specialties with sea view, what more could you want? We enjoyed it in the sun!

Taco Bell is redefining drive-thrus as consumers know it with one of its most innovative Taco Bell restaurant designs yet. Coined Taco Bell Defy, the restaurant that broke ground last summer opened its doors – but most importantly, its four-lane drive-thru – in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota on June 7. The first of its kind two-story model delivers innovative technology and design, like a proprietary vertical lift to transport iconic craveable Taco Bell menu items straight from the kitchen to fans.

Back in August 2021 we wrote about the plans for this new drive-thru and as far as we can see, it’s as they said it would be.
