Envy delicacies was envisioned and developed during the many trips that owner Bert van der Leden made to Rome. Italy has countless small delicatessens. There, a village butcher not only sells meat, he also lets his customers sample many of his special products, while at the same time giving advice on which wine is extraordinarily well suited for just the right combination of tastes. It is a new way of experiencing products that makes the customer curious for more, in a small shop where all the products from the countryside are visible right inside the windows and immediately available for tasting. Indeed, they are fresher than fresh. Besides the fact that all the villagers shop there, the attorney from the nearby town also makes a point of driving there in the weekend to do his shopping. At the back of the butcher’s shop there’s a wooden table that serves as a meeting place for the regulars. The guests can sample the products while having a nice conversation over a glass of wine.
Envy delicacies creates the same feeling, despite the fact that it doesn’t function as a shop. It is a meeting place with just the right atmosphere, where fresh products and good wines are most important. That is also the reason why Concrete Architectural Associates, the firm that designed the restaurant, chose to combine sleek minimalism with living-room-style comfort. Immediately upon entering, guests can’t help but notice the spacious open kitchen and get a direct sense of the world of the preparation of products. One of the walls consists of 26 refrigerators positioned at eye-level and finished in oak with chrome handles. The refrigerators are intended as showcases for wines, but also for cheeses, sausages, oysters, jams, chutneys, etc. All this serves to arouse an immediate interest in the products, and just looking at them makes your mouth water.

Naturally we are delighted and invite you to celebrate this with us, every Monday night when Head Chef Michael Wolf and his team offer a special tasting menu with 5 typical Envy dishes for €36,-
