L.E.S.S. features Serax furniture and tableware


Revamped L.E.S.S. features Serax tableware and furniture


Only a few short months after closing their three-star restaurant Hertog Jan in December 2018, Gert De Mangeleer and Joachim Boudens opened their new restaurant in Bruges: a revamped version of their sharing restaurant L.E.S.S. The new L.E.S.S. by Hertog Jan*** is a cosy eatery with international allure, where you can satisfy your culinary cravings large and small in the familiar L.E.S.S. style. The restaurant also boasts a stylish and surprising interior.

L.E.S.S. Bruges

Love. Eat. Share. Smile.

The L.E.S.S. interior, based on a brutalist design, makes good use of warm materials such as wood, textured walls, nubuck and refined textiles to add warmth and personality.

A warm and inspiring interior

Gert De Mangeleer and Joachim Boudens

The L.E.S.S. kitchen team, under the daily management of Chef Ruige Vermeire, creates delicious dishes inspired by worldly flavours. The menu includes things that Gert enjoys at home with friends and family, such as a Marrakesh burger, Peruvian ceviche, and Hong Kong dim sum. Joachim provides an exquisite selection of wines and beers, abandoning the well-trodden path in favour of new discoveries from around the world.

'Urbanist ceramics' by Frédérick Gautier

L.E.S.S opted for the 'Urbanist Ceramics' series by Serax. With a clear predilection for simple shapes and a rough concrete finish, 'Urbanist Ceramics' by eccentric French designer Frédérick Gautier is an ode to Brutalism and architecture. The works of architectural masters like Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer are clearly reflected in this series: in its massive size on which to showcase the food; in its robustness and solidity, like an impenetrable concrete wall; and in the austerity of its subtle earth tones.
