With FG Food Labs, I am exploring the boundaries. Searching for how compelling a flavour can actually be, or how pure an ingredient can be. What is it exactly that makes you relive that one special memory? I want to see how far I can go with preparation methods, how I can get the best out of products. We have created an intimate and industrial location, in the midst of the trendy, new heart of Rotterdam. We are finally breaking the established ideas on background music and furnishings. We distil ambience here.

As a gateway to the FG Restaurant, the Food Labs is an idiosyncratic hotspot where ideas are born. Yet, above all, it is here where I create a boundless restaurant experience, together with a fantastic team. Each and every day.
