ANTWERP: Chef Nick Bril has offered the Upper Room Bar of The Jane Antwerp to Thijs Meliefste and his team for an unusual and unique two-week pop-up in Antwerp.
Like other restaurants in the Netherlands, Meliefste in the Netherlands are still closed. “After last Friday’s news we have decided to help our northern neighbours and reach out a hand to our dear friends from restaurant Meliefste.
As from Thursday 27 January, Thijs Meliefste, the acclaimed Dutch chef will takeover the Upper Room Bar for a temporary pop-up from Thursday to Sunday for lunch and dinner.
There is still uncertainty as to when restaurants will be allowed to reopen and also in what form. “Will we be allowed to open until 5pm? Nobody knows.”
Meliefste said that this was a strange time but they had come up with this fun idea together with good friend Nick Bril. “This way we can still do what we love to do, which is to make our guests happy. We want to see that smile on our guests face again and we want to feel the fire in the kitchen again.”
The menu will showcase the best ingredients from Zeeland. The price for the all in menu is EUR 295 per person and includes aperitif and a wine pairing or non-alcoholic pairing.
