At the end of this year, made Gert De Mangeleer and Joachim Boudens known that they have their driesterrenrestaurant Hertog Jan would be closing. They would be the farm in which the case is also home to sell.

That last plan they have already put aside, to tell the two Saturday in het nieuwsblad. “It is ideal for seminars, product presentations, but also baby showers, weddings … where we also for cooking. Not that we now have banquet facilities or caterers are going to play, but a marriage with the Duke john stamp. And so we can the property also keep. The offices and the kitchen serves as a test – and voorbereidingskeuken for the other projects.”

Now all of benefit from the duo Bistro L. E. S. S., that around tapas runs and currently lives in Sint-Michiels. With that action, want The Mangeleer and Boudens to the city. “Most of all, to Bruges, but the negotiations run hard. There Is at the end of next week, no decision, than we continue: to Ghent. It comes around, we’ll pull a year later to Ghent for the second establishment. The concept is still a little bigger than what it is now, with a bakery and patisserieshop, coffee and wine bar.’

In the present building of the L. E. S. S. is a new restaurant, where one of The Mangeleers souschefs and the maître of the current Duke Jan will work together. The new case focuses on the Flemish kitchen, but at the top level. (Tomato-shrimp like you have never had before. With the best shrimp. The most beautiful tomato. Fries like you have never served.’
