Kazerne welcomes team second restaurant
We proudly present the culinary ‘rockers’ of the second restaurant within the design and hospitality concept of Kazerne: Rasmus Olander, Nik Tonglet, Mark Groenendaal and Maître/sommelier Alexander van der Voort. From 9 March 2019, they offer a unique gastronomic experience with Nordic touch. In this new, intimate restaurant, Kazerne also aims to inspire and connect fine dining enthusiasts.
As home of design, Kazerne considers experimentation to be of the paramount importance. After all, that is precisely how innovation comes about. Olander: “I look forward to rethinking familiar tastes, textures and techniques with the new crew and to creating new dishes together. We are taking the time to develop our own signature. Based on Nordic tradition, we are inspired by seasonal, local ingredients and authentic preparation methods”.
Similar to a rock band in which the lead singer and guitarist excel at working together with the drummer, this new restaurant is all about the synergy of the team. Each person has their own, indispensable, role in achieving an optimal culinary experience. Only 23 years of age, Swedish talent Rasmus Olander previously worked at Kommilfoo* in Antwerp and Geranium*** in Copenhagen. Nik Tonglet from Tilburg acquired both a Bib Gourmand and a mention in the leading magazine ‘top 100 Lekker’ within one year of working as the chef of De Houtloods. He gained experience at, among others, The Fat Duck*** in Bray, England, and Noma** in Copenhagen.
Mark Groenendaal has been part of the Kazerne team before and is known to be a curious cook. He forms the lynchpin between the new kitchen and the industrial restaurant, which was opened in 2014. Maître/Sommelier Alexander van de Voort has more than earned his stripes in Eindhoven. The people who know him are well aware that he guarantees a refined choice of excellent wines and surprising wine/food combinations.
The fine dining restaurant is opening in the recently renovated coach house of the former military police barracks, which was also used by the fire brigade for a number of years. Led by founders Annemoon Geurts and Koen Rijnbeek, this was recently transformed into an intimate, luxurious design space with soft earthy colours, rich materials and leading designs with great attention to original beauty.
