Chef Stephan Nijst

The restaurant is supposed to open in June with a menu card that will adapt to every seasons, in a way that no restaurant has done before. The change of the season will not only be visible on the menu, but in all aspects of the restaurant. Stephan worked for ‘De Eetclub’ in Scheveningen and was featured in the Dutch version of the reality show ‘My Restaurant Rules’.

The name needs to reflect…
