‘BEST RESTAURANT & BAR’: ZALMHUIS
In this category, the jury judges the energetic vibe. For the winner, f&b offerings, atmosphere, interior and service fit the chosen concept perfectly.
Het Zalmhuis in Rotterdam is a striking and monumental building on the Nieuwe Maas River. Catering entrepreneur Herman Hell had the building completely restyled.
Herman Hell owns hospitality group Hell’s Kitchen of Van Zanten, Sijf and NRC Café (all Rotterdam), among others. Herman had the grand café and its halls completely restyled by his ex-wife Liselore of the company Elect Interior into contemporary spaces that breathe the atmosphere of the big city. The interior of the grand cafe consists of lots of brass and marble, and also striking is the colorful upholstery of the chairs.
In nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Het Zalmhuis housed the market for the largest salmon auction in the Netherlands. The building was demolished in 1955 and rebuilt a little further down the road in 1999. Consequently, two of the showpieces of the menu are the organic Scottish Wester Ross salmon and Keta salmon from Alaska. Guests can additionally enjoy the BRAK gin developed especially for the Salmon House.
