Dutchman Sergio Herman, other than Marc Veyrat from France, is the only chef ever to have received the fabulous highest rating of 20 points from GaultMillau. His unequalled career started in 1990 in his parents’ restaurant Oud Sluis. Sergio Herman’s outstanding culinary skills saw him achieve the highest ranking of three stars in the Michelin Guide, as well as occupying a continuous leading position for years in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants rankings. Despite this success, Sergio Herman decided at the end of 2013, to close the doors of the legendary gourmet temple, to give his guests an even more unique culinary experience by collaborating with designers, DJs and artists.
However, even with his constant drive for innovation, classic cuisine always forms the basis of his creations. Today, the 48-year old is at the head of four restaurants in Belgium and the Netherlands: The Jane in Antwerp (2 Michelin stars), as well as Pure C (1 Michelin star), AIRrepublic (1 Michelin star) and Blueness in Cadzand-Bad. Furthermore, he has taken on the culinary responsibility for the French fries’ concept eatery “Frites Atelier Amsterdam”, which will soon open its fifth and sixth outlet in Ghent and Brussels.
