A Fishy Tale

In the Foodhallen in Amsterdam, chefs Robert Kranenborg, Richard van Oostenbrugge and Thomas Groot have unveiled a new seafood-streetfood concept; Le Big Fish.

The chefs chose marble-effect Silestone by Cosentino in Lyra for the feature open kitchen.  At Le Big Fish traditional dishes are prepared without pretension. Starting from the ‘one chef, one dish’ idea, the open-plan set up offers direct contact between the chefs and the customers.

The industrial appearance of the Hallen provides a powerful contrast with the white marble look of Lyra from the Silestone Nebula collection. The countertop is also a practical solution; being scratch, stain and impact resistant, as well as very hygienic thanks to built in bacteriostatic protection.

The stand features an Integrity sink in the same colour, made from one-piece of Silestone without joints and with curved outlines for easier cleaning. This offers perfect integration with the rest of the elements of the worktop.

De Hallen Amsterdam has been created in a former tram depot.  Several entrepreneurs have created food stands here; with only one type for every kind of food: such as Vietnamese, Italian, wine bar, hamburger bar, ‘bitterbal bar’ and this fish stall.  The concept was inspired by ‘indoor food markets’ like the Torvehallerne in Copenhagen, Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid and Borough Market in London.
