STABLE serves a pure cuisine led by head chef Tom Loockx. Tom is a young and ambitious chef who build his experience through short but intense internships in several kitchens over the world. Intense and powerful flavors are combined in understandable yet surprisingly creations. His drive is what moves him every day to evolve his cooking style into something unique with respect for simplicity. STABLE offers both lunch and dinner. As guests in the main hall or in the privacy of our chef’s table.
IN BETWEEN GOALS, THERE IS A LIFE THAT HAS TO BE LIVED AND ENJOYED
Our instinctive urge for all things genuine guided us here. Creating an intuitive dining concept set in the former stables of Hof Ter Linden. An intense and powerful cuisine based on fresh and honest ingredients inflamed by head chef Tom Loockx and a purified setting to extend and strengthen our uncompromised attitude towards food. Coming to STABLE means to dive in. Headfirst. And taking it all in.
A darkened, yet sensorial scenery envisioned by Dieter Vander Velpen will make for an intense journey. Arno Declercq created a custom bar sculpture that enhances this raw and monumental aestethic. Pure, noble materials stripped from any excess. Raw traces of the past. Light and darkness. Welded together to revive the former stables into a place of virtue and venture. A place of forceful encounters, both on a gastronomical and an aesthetical level.
STABLE is set in the ancient stables of Hof Ter Linden, a castle domain south of Antwerp dating back to the 17th century. The chateau grounds include multiple neoclassical buildings. Castle, carriages houses and stables are embedded in a forested area with an aisle of lime trees leading up to it. Drawing from the past, but eager to forge our own future STABLE has found a place in the eastern carriage house. Chase your instinct. You’ll know where to be.
