Marc van der Tang, (29) former Sous Chef of Ciel Bleu is the Chef de Cuisine at Serre Restaurant and will be guiding the kitchen team and creating innovative, yet classic dishes that reflect the essence of Ciel Bleu. He has worked with Onno Kokmeijer at Ciel Bleu for seven years and has completed the ‘Starclass’ course, which is the most exclusive cooking course for young professionals in the Netherlands.
Onno Kokmeijer, Ciel Bleu’s Executive Chef and Manager will also be overseeing the restaurant menus. Commenting on the new development he said “We wanted to give our guests more options to enjoy our flagship French cuisine. While Ciel Bleu is available for an extensive á la carte dinner, guests can now also visit Serre Restaurant for breakfast or a quick business lunch.”
Serre Restaurant features a modern interior design, allowing guests to enjoy their food in a relaxed, informal setting. A semi-open kitchen enhances the restaurant’s ‘buzzy’ and contemporary atmosphere. In addition, the restaurant has a spacious terrace, where guests have a view of the Amstel Canal from their dining chairs.
Jan Wilson from the London architectural firm of RPW was commissioned to design Serre Restaurant. She has been responsible for a number of other areas within the hotel and in this case has stamped her hallmark on the design with a deep rich blue interior featuring an internally lit porcelain chandelier which undulates above the central dining area and an impressive wine display as the backdrop.
The restaurant will be open daily from 7am until 11pm. A ‘Serre Bento Box’ costs €34.50 or €39.50 per person with wine. Reservations can be made via email@example.com or call 0031 20 6787 450
