Bistro LOF

Bistro LOF at Culinary Estate Parc Broekhuizen

LOF equals praise…

LOF… Praise the good kitchen….

LOF… Praise Love in LOF……

LOF… Praise the translation into chicory….

Culinary estate Parc Broekhuizen made its dream come true, a second restaurant

LOF is stated as a bistro. But not a regular one. Out of the old, monumental farm right next to the Orangerie, a stunning restaurant concept was created, which combines a lovely history with a 21st century setting. A new, poetic sphere has risen between the historic castlewall, the Orangerie, the recently restored original kitchengarden and the beautiful terrace, which was set at the beginning of the dream, back in 2016. Being our guest, you wunder arround this beautiful spot of the estate, surrounded by known and unknown vegetables, eatable flowers and herbs and spices, just waiting for our chefs to be handpicked and harvested. The distance between kitchengarden and actual kitchen is nearly 10 meters, you can’t get much fresher and sustainable vegetables than that! Paradise on earth!

Bistro LOF is an inspiring, warm and welcoming place to be, both for local and regional inhabitans to take a break of their bussy schedule and calm down. Eating favourable food and delishes dishes in a relaxing atmosphere. Not only locals, also hotelguests will embrace LOF. They have the luxury of getting pampered all over again, after that culinary night at restaurant Voltaire*.

After exploring the beautiful nature of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug, both cyclist and hiker can adopt bistro LOF in their route and slow down to take a break with some excellent coffee and homemade patisserie, a juice or weldeserved glass beer or wine, paired with some chacuterie or tasty snack.

LOF wil surprise you with it’s favourable and accessable menu. Our staff will surprise you with their warm and welcome attidude and hostmanship. LOF will be a place that, once you’re there, you’ll never want to leave. What a bliss there is a beautiful hotel nearby!

Celebrate your own moods
‘LOF has four ambiances. At the Chefs table, right in the middle of the kitchen, we have room for eight guests, the gardenroom, looking over the kitchengarden and historic castle wall, the ancient old peasants house on the side of the restaurant offers several possibilities for private dining and the kitchen chambre is within the tall open space. exaclty in front of the kitchen.

De Chef
Seventeen years, he refined his qualities within the art ot the sourish, bitterly, fresh and sweets in the kitchen of restaurant de Leest*** in Vaassen owned by Jacob Jan Boerma and Kim Veldman. First class gastronomy. Ewout; ‘a glorious time! I had a background role at the Leest, so it is fantastic to have the possibility to get the front row seat and predominate’.

To compose your own menu
Yes, that’s really great. It’s amazing to look around and see all the beautiful fruits and herbs which are growing at the Parc! Cherry, pear, appletree’s, raspberry, blue berry, vigs, cranberry, mushrooms…it all grows right here! Fantastic isn’t it?!

What will be on the menu?
Simple and honest dishes. The,  quality is in the preperation, not the cultivation of the dishes, as we had in the Leest. What we have is a nice charcuterie and snacks on the menu. We have a lunch and dinner menu, compliant with all kinds of price ranges. You can walk in here for a cop of coffee  with applepie or my interpretation of the classic eclair. But you can also enjoy a 3course dinner for € 39,00, the price of a Bib Gourmand menu. I am allowed to create a kind of livingroom, were everybody can walk in and join! Remember the joie de vivre of a Paris bistrot in combination with the serenity of Scandinavia.

There is a wood fired oven in the kitchen, your favorite? 
Yes, the so called Beech oven is a great oven, it provides an unique taste. Think about a nice côte de boeuf, cooked with thyme, rosemary, garlic and oregano gives a beautiful flavour. Or a tarte flambée! (I am) Living my dream at bistro LOF.

First class gastronomy. Ewout; ‘a glorious time! Always giving everything for that one purpose, the second Michelin star and after that, the third. He discripes the time at de Leest as a way of living. “Jacob Jan taught me how to regonise and respect quality. Just knowing that this bean is so much better to eat than the other one. Be creative, travel a lot, taste a lot of diferent food. Fantastic, unknown products.

What’s it like to be in control of it all at LOF?
Still I get goosebumbs knowing I have a lot of freedom and possibilities to grow with LOF. Being involved every step of the way, with the menu, wines, the staff, which music must be played and the identity of LOF. It’s a lot of fun, my role at de Leest was more the background type, it’s fantastic to have the possiblility to get the front row seat and be predominate!
