In Switzerland, Minkman won a Michelin star when he was still very young and after his return to the Netherlands, he caused a sensation with his restaurant Het Oude Gemeentehuis. The menu features classics in surprising and innovative combinations, such as tuna, crab and oyster and goose liver with cherries, or sweetbreads with green asparagus, or skate wing with beurre noisette. With chef Niels Minkman you can sample the finest produce from the region and far beyond. He cooks in an open kitchen surrounded by his guests.
