Herbert Janse, Margot’s brother, flew in from Holland and spent an intensive couple of weeks redesigning the Tasting Room. With a background in set and theatre design he certainly has theatrical flair, and has created a stage worthy of the cuisine. “The décor reflects Margot Janse’s food,” says Herbert. “The unexpected.”
There are teasers throughout. Antique crystal bulbs dating back to 1910 have been placed irregularly on the ceiling. Herbert found them in Holland: “they’re early electric bulbs that were once used at fairs.”
There’s also a set of crockery stuck upside down to the celling—almost like a wink from the chef herself.
