AIRrepublic, the restaurant and terrace café created by Sergio Herman in Cadzand, Zeeland Netherlands will open in Spring 2017.
The restaurant announced on its Facebook page that it was recruiting staff for the opening of the much awaited project in Cadzand.
Earlier this year, Herman said “Air Republic is coming between Belgium and Holland. You feel it…the air and the vibe is always different! Every single day.”
Herman is one of the most talented chefs in the world. He decided to stop cooking full time in 2013. He has, however, not rested on his laurels created the successful The Jane with Nick Bril in Antwerp and Pure C in Cadzand with Syrco Bakker.
After the success of his two restaurants, he set sights on opening this new harbour restaurant, pavillion and takeaway in the beach town on the North Sea. The seaside resort in the Netherlands was partially made popular by his restaurant Pure C.
Sergio Herman is the former 3 Michelin star chef of Oud Sluis. He decided to close his world famous restaurant in 2013 to seek more balance in his life and to pursue other projects.
Since closing his restaurant in Sluis, just a few kilometres away from Cadzand he has focused on his two restaurants The Jane in Antwerp and Pure C in Cadzand but had told Food and Wine Gazette last year he still wanted to create something different to the two restaurants.
In June this year, Herman also introduced a new concept in the Netherlands, creating Frites Atelier with the aim of creating the world’s ‘best fries’. The aim of the chain which opened its first restaurant in The Hague is to turn the humble potato and the common fast food into something good. Herman researched potatoes to find the best varieties that he could use for the chain and the sauces to accompany the fries change according to the season. All the sauces and mayonnaise accompanying the fries are made in-house. The chain is also set to open in the city of Antwerp shortly.
The Jane is considered to be one of the most stunning restaurants in the world and is housed in a former church. Anyone interested in working at Air Republic can contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org
