Verhulst + Fredericks Pop-up Restaurant by SSF
VERHULST + FREDERICKS: A Pop-up Dutch Farmhouse Restaurant in Manhattan for the Sustainable Style Foundation
In collaboration with the Sustainable Style Foundation, the Verhulst + Fredericks pop-up restaurant will combine the worlds of interior design, fashion, and food creation. This unique dining experience will inspire stylish sustainable living, and spark creative conversation – all while connecting people to the rich history of New York. The three-week, farmhouse-inspired restaurant will serve healthy, fresh, and inventive food inspired by lower Manhattan’s Dutch roots. Appropriately located on the Bowery, which was once populated by Dutch farmhouses called "bouwerij" during the 17th century, the restaurant will continue the pioneering spirit of its namesake explorers in an ever-changing and trendsetting neighborhood of present day New York.
The interior design of the restaurant will follow guidelines for LEED CI (Commercial Interiors) Silver certification. Staff will be outfitted by a professional stylist and music will also be an integral part of the overall concept. In keeping with the sustainable spirit, V+F will seek partnerships with sustainable purveyors, a local forager, Greenmarket NYC vendors and local Community Supported Agriculture groups. Coming soon to NYC, the restaurant will seat 25-30 people, with three reserved seatings a night for dinner along with bar/counter service.
