[Belgium: Antwerp] 2* The Jane
Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤ (5/5)
Our lunch at The Jane turned out to be the best meal we had on this trip to Belgium! The stunning restaurant is set in the former chapel of the Military Hospital with amazing details including a dramatic steel chandelier, contemporary stained glass windows and an open kitchen encased in glass. Founded by Sergio Herman and Nick Bril, the flavors at The Jane were bold yet well-balanced with influences from around the world including Asia. The restaurant serves a 10 course tasting menu for €170 with options for wine and non-alcoholic pairing.
- burnt sea bass marinated Japanese style and cured with burnt onion powder
- fresh acidic gel from barbecued onions and lemons
- dashi toasted kombu with smoked bonito and toasted hay
- oil of burnt onions / smoked creme fraiche pearls
Blue Fin Tuna Tartare with scrambled egg, seaweed and wasabi
The main star of the show was this 10-Day Dry Aged Pigeon from Steenvoorde with cassis and bbq-cabbage which was paraded to us at the table before taken back to be cut up. The smokey flavors of the pigeon was very nice and went well with the berry sauce on the side.
What an impressive meal at The Jane complete with impeccable food and service - this is a restaurant we would love to revisit again soon!
