I could’ve written about Coldplay’s Yellow here, but instead I’m going to write a little note about food. Not just any food, no.
This past Friday marked the opening night of Yellow Bistro & Bar. Set in a historic building in the centre of Belgian city Bruges, Yellow is a new restaurant concept curated by Gert De Mangeleer and Joachim Boudens of three Michelin starred restaurant Hertog Jan, formerly located in Bruges and re-opening later this year in Zedelgem (which happens to be my new hometown, by the way).
They aim at serving local products (De Mangeleer’s signature dishes) combined with surprising wine and beer combinations (as selected by Boudens).
Next to the bistro concept, there’s also a champagne bar courtesy of Veuve Clicquot. As a matter of fact, the name of the bistro and bar, Yellow, is a reference to the typical yellow colour of Maison Veuve Clicquot. There’s a selection of tapas available to accompany your drink, whether you’re having a drink before dinner or just unwinding with friends.
I had a sneak peek at the menu and have a date set with my friend already. If you’re feeling the yellow vibes as well, then do make your reservations before they close by the end of May.
28.02 – 31.05 (noon-3pm; 6-10pm)
