They are, however, extending their coverage testing not just takeaway in their city Bruges but also in Antwerp and Ghent.
With no date yet set for the reopening of restaurants in Belgium, Gert and Joachim have shifted to delivery for the time being.
At both restaurants, one in central Bruges and one in the former building which housed their first ever Hertog Jan which brought them three Michelin stars, they are offering two different menus with signature dishes from the two restaurants.
Gert De Mangeleer and Joachim Boudens opened L.E.S.S. in its new location in one of the main Bruges squares last year and the head chef Ruige Vermeire clinched a star for the restaurant in less than a year. Bar Bulot opened late last year after a successful summer pop-up.
The two operated Hertog Jan which they closed for good at the end of 2018 to work on different projects.
For the Mother’s Day weekend next week, they are offering a box with bites, starters, a main course and dessert for EUR 59 from Bar Bulot and EUR 69 from L.E.S.S.. Customers can also add wines that have been selected by Joachim Boudens, one of Belgium’s top sommeliers and which are available at the restaurants.
At Bistro L.E.S.S., they have are offering steamed enamel with shisho flavoured seasalt, spicy fried squid with garlic chili mayo, cockles from Zeeland with spring onions, coriander, soy and combava oil and spicy beef masala with fried rice and Jews ear mushrooms Szechuan style.
For dessert, they have the L.E.S.S. tartelette know as Liquid Snickers, a signature dish of the restaurant.
From Bar Bulot, guests will receive Iberico ham Maldonado and fried squid with tartar sauce, their signature tomato with shrimp, cod cooked in papilotte with artichokes, tomatoes and southern flavours.
Both restaurants are also offering ‘vouchers’ that can be used later for Mother’s Day.
