Finally, finally, finally! We finally were able to secure a table at The Jane! The impossible became possible! The Jane is the 74th best restaurant in the world for 2017 and holds 2 Michelin stars. You can only reserve 3 months in advance and the opening is posted at 8:00AM. After two years of trying the waiting list we were able to go!
A bit of background from The World’s 50 Best:
Why go? If food is the new religion, this stunning restaurant in a former chapel takes eating out to its logical conclusion. Head chefs (or should that be high priests?) Sergio Herman and Nick Bril work in an open kitchen where the altar once stood, creating boldy flavored dishes inspired by global cuisines.
More about the room: The 19th century former military hospital chapel was refurbished by hot-shot Dutch designer Piet Boon and includes a dramatic steel and glass chandelier and contemporary stained glass windows referencing good and evil, food and religion.
What’s on the menu? Expect globe-trotting dishes such as scallop, Jerusalem artichoke, truffle and foie gras, scattered with edible flower; or cauliflower, spelt and kalamansi (similar to kumquat) topped with a golden egg yolk.
Who are the chefs? Sergio Herman is best known for his (now closed) former World’s 50 Best Restaurants regular Oud Sluis, where Nick Bril was his right-hand man.
