By Jarmusch Rotterdam
Since the summer of 2017, people from Rotterdam can go to an ‘American breakfast café’ in the Industrial Building in the Hoogkwartier in Rotterdam.
At the new restaurant By Jarmusch you will find ‘eggs-any-way-you-like’, sandwiches and pancakes with syrup on the menu. With a menu inspired by the classic American diners. Fresh coffee is also served from Man with Bril Koffie. Getting up early is not necessary: breakfast is served until 16:00.
In addition to the classic American delicacies, By Jarmusch – named after director Jim Jarmusch and based on his film Coffee and Cigarettes – you can also order a smaller or healthier snack such as salads or an acaibowl.
Entrepreneurs Ruben Venema of the Biergarten and Tjeerd Hendriks of the Rotterdam department store Groos are the driving forces behind the new eatery. They aim for a diverse audience. ,, We want to have the trucker next to the lawyer at the bar. People getting ready for their workday or at the weekend to fix their hangover. ”
The Industrial building was realized during the reconstruction of Rotterdam. It is no longer just a collection of companies, but now also a culinary hotspot. The interior is an ode to the classic American diners and to the architect of Het Industriegebouw, Hugh Maaskant. Details such as the shape of the long bar, the booths, the black steel lamps and the bar stools, refer to the metropolitan style of the architect who also designed the Euromast.
For the interior, Lensvelt supplied black chairs by Richard Hutten, the stackable This 101 PP Chair.
