WELCOME TO RESTAURANT BENZ AT KAZERNE, A CULINARY EXPERIENCE WITH NORDIC TWIST
Light, fresh, delicate ánd earthy. Our culinary ‘rockers’ Olander, Tonglet and Groenendaal harmoniously balance this supposed contradiction. Together with Maître/sommelier van der Voort they offer a gastronomic experience unique to Eindhoven, with Scandinavian touch.
WE PROUDLY PRESENT
The 24-year-old Swedish talent RASMUS OLANDER previously worked for the Antwerp-based Kommilfoo* and Geranium*** in Copenhagen, among others.
The Tilburg-based NIK TONGLET was awarded both a Bib Gourmand and a top 100 Tasty mention within a year of becoming chef of the Houtloods. He gained experience with The Fat Duck*** in Bray, England and Noma** in Copenhagen.
MARK GROENENDAAL has previously worked in Kazerne. He is the linking pin between the new kitchen and the team at the other restaurant, which opened in 2014.
Maître/Sommelier ALEXANDER VAN DER VOORT has more than earned his stripes in Eindhoven. He is known for his refined choice of excellent wines and surprising wine/food pairings.
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.

Developing new tastes
As a home or design, Kazerne considers experimentation of paramount importance. Ultimately, that is where innovation comes about. Olander: “I am looking forward to questioning familiar tastes, textures and techniques together with the new crew and create new dishes. We will take the time to develop our own signature. Based on Nordic ideas, we are inspired by seasonal, local ingredients and authentic preparation methods.
Eindhoven’s first motorized fire engine
The fine dining restaurant is opening in the recently renovated coach house of the former military police barracks. From 1923 to 1952 the fire brigade was based here. Where an impressive stainless steel kitchen has recently been installed, Eindhoven used to put away it’s first motorized fire engine spray, nicknamed ‘D’n Benz’. Led by founders Annemoon Geurts and Koen Rijnbeek, the coach house was recently transformed into an intimate, luxurious design space with soft earthy colours, rich materials and leading design, with great attention to its original beauty.
