BRUSSELS: The first time Sang Hoon Degeimbre ventured to Brussels, it was to open San Brussels in Rue de Flandre in the centre of the city.
After five years, that restaurant will make way for VerTige, a new sustainable concept that brings to Brussels the talented Kevin Perlot.
San Brussels was the first urban restaurant that took the lunch time concept at L’Air du Temps of serving dishes in bowls and brought it to the city. Since then he has followed with two other San restaurants, one in the Sablon area of Brussels and another in Ghent.
In five years, the SAN family of restaurants has also grown to include Toshiro and Rizom.
Now the young talented chef Kevin Perlot is taking over San Bruxelles and turning it over into VerTige. The 25-year-old chef has worked in various renowned restaurants in Belgium including three years at L’Air du Temps and most recently he developed his culinary identity at Pepite, a famous culinary cellar in Namur.
His ambition at the new restaurant is to create a sustainable, modern, plant-based gastronomy that is indispensable in today’s world.
VerTige promises to write the definition of tomorrow’s gastronomy as it will be based on nature and sustainability, with a minimal carbon footprint while sharing the knowhow of craftsmen and artisanal producers in a minimalist and precise setting.
Kevin will bring with him an inventive and creative cuisine, fresh, respectful and committed to produce and their story, to nature and its seasons and which evolves according to each harvest.
The restaurant promises to be an escape to the countryside in a city centre with warm minimalism.
The restaurant opened on 23 June.
Open from Tuesday to Saturday from 12 noon to 2pm and from 7pm to 10pm. Price for lunch is EUR 45. Price for dinner is EUR 95.
Address: Rue de Flandre, 19, Brussels
