Bart Klomp

"ELEVATING GOOD FOOD TO RELIGIOUS HEIGHTS"

Chef Bart Klomp is most definitely not unfamiliar with setting up new businesses. He was instrumental in the team that set up François Geurds’ first restaurant, “Ivy” (now “FG”). Within nine months, the restaurant got its first Michelin star and by now it received its second star as well. After this, he left to Avand-Garde in Eindhoven where he was mostly responsible for the pastry section. This restaurant had already been crowned with a Michelin star for several years and Klomp gained a lot of knowledge here.

Eventually Klomp was asked by Adrian Zarzo to help set up “Zarzo”. As the kitchen chef, his main goal to create and build a successful and leading business, was accomplished once again and his success was rewarded with another Michelin star.

Restaurant Liefdegesticht is the place where all of these experiences come together and where Klomp can call himself chef at the age of 31. Restaurant Liefdesgesticht is the personification of Klomp as a chef: building upon years of experience he delights customers with his basic ingredients being quality, purity, simplicity and creativity. Restaurant Liefdegesticht is not just a restaurant, but a sanctuary in which Bart Klomp and his team display their passion on a daily basis.
