WELCOME TO RESTAURANT BENZ AT KAZERNE
A CULINARY EXPERIENCE WITH NORDIC TWIST
Light, fresh, delicate and earthy. The 24 year old talent Rasmus Olander and his team harmoniously balance this supposed contradiction. Together with Maître/sommelier van der Voort they offer a gastronomic experience unique to Eindhoven, with Scandinavian touch. The restaurant, which opened in March 2019, was already ranked by Proefschrift.nl as one of the 10 best Dutch restaurants in the category up to 75 euros in October.
Gault&Millau: “More than successful and daring is the perfectly cooked scallop with soy sauce and cherry blossom.” “A promising vision on Nordic Cuisine.”
Pieter Nijdam, Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: “So beautiful, so subtle, everything is just right. What this Swede does with our asparagus is breathtaking, the still crunchy white stems in foamy butter sauce with lemon thyme is the most delicious preparation we have ever had.”
Joel Broekaert Dutch newspaper NRC: “Beautiful and original flavors. Also impressive is the vegetarian main: the dried and grilled beetroots with the deep and dark vegetable sauce really draws you in your plate!”. “All his wines are beautifully paired to the dishes.”
Developing new tastes
The 24-year-old Swedish talent RASMUS OLANDER previously worked for the Antwerp-based Kommilfoo* and Geranium*** in Copenhagen, among others. 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.
As a home or design, Kazerne considers experimentation of paramount importance. Ultimately, that is where innovation comes about. Olander: “We are questioning familiar tastes, textures and techniques to 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.
