After the successful opening of Frites Atelier Amsterdam in Antwerp, Sergio Herman has announced that new shops will be opened in the Belgian capital city Brussels and in Gent.
The dates and location of the successful chain of french fries has not yet been announced.
Launched in 2016 in the Netherlands, Frites Atelier Amsterdam has shops in the Hague, Utrecht, Arnhem and Antwerp. A shop in Amsterdam is also set to open shortly.
There seems to be no stopping Sergio Herman. After deciding to stop cooking full time at the end of 2013 when he closed his three Michelin star restaurant Oud Sluis in the Netherlands he has successfully launched new projects like The Jane, further developed Pure C, created Frites Atelier and opened Air Republic in Cadzand.
Sergio Herman is also considering opening Frites Atelier Amsterdam at Brussels Airport and Amsterdam airport.
While the French fries that are served at Frites Atelier Amsterdam may not be the same that the Belgians are used to (the potatoes are not peeled), the top friteries in the capital city will face stiff competition from Herman whose aim with the chain is to turn the humble potato and the common fast food into something good. Herman has been researching potatoes to find the best varieties that are used for Frites Atelier for the chain and the sauces that accompany the fries change according to the seasons.
What makes Atelier Frites special are the sauces that are made in house which include ketchup, bearnaise, Asian curry, truffle and andalouse as well as the different original toppings that are served with the fries.
Herman collaborated with Dutch designer Piet Boon on the concept.
