The Belga Queen restaurant, which was declared bankrupt last summer, has been taken over by the Belgian hamburger restaurant chain Manhattn's. This fifth branch of Manhattn's in Ghent is also the last establishment in Belgium before expansion abroad.
Jerome Vandermeulen decided after a period in New York to launch a hamburger restaurant in Belgium. He is CEO 'Chief Everything Officer' at Manhattn's. His brother Philipe is 'Chief Quality Officer' and takes care of the kitchen. The quality of the food is important but also is the interior, which is reminiscent of the New York post-industrial loft style.
Taste the New York flair in combination with Belgian traditions. Flame-grilled burgers with fresh Belgian fries and homemade sauces. The chefs only use grass-fed Irish Angus beef and tasty buns, based on an original recipe from a Little Italy bakery. The best ingredients to guarantee the ultimate burger experience. You order efficiently: at the counter. Fast-casual dining, with an energetic American service
The brothers already proved that the formula works in Brussels and Antwerp. Manhattn's is established on Avenue Louise Brussels, the Beurs and on Jubelpark. In Antwerp the restaurant can be found at Groenplaats.
Vandermeulen used to work as a Belgian waffle merchant in New York. For 2 years he mastered the ins and outs of the NYC food truck scene and street life in general. In 2014, he founded Manhattn's in the revolutionary spirit of giving people the opportunity to be part of the entertaining and enchanting New York experience. Jerome was not only inspired in New York for the concept, but he also opted for a cash register system that he saw often in NYC; Micros. The fast-growing bakery chain Le Pain Quotidien also works with Micros, a sign the system can handle rapid growth very well. VanderMeulen; "Micros RES 3700 is a perfect solution for us, a robust and reliable system."
Micros is a POS system that is known worldwide and has been operating within the hospitality industry since 1979. It is a good system for chain restaurants, the synchronization between different locations is easy. For specific advice, please contact Van Hessen.
Vandermeulen says he is happy with van Hessen; "The service is very good. That's why I am a loyal customer for five years. "
