To start a new business is no easy feat, but Alberts and Verwer are no strangers to the hospitality business in The Hague. Together they run the well-known Bar Bistro De Twee Heeren just a stone’s throw away from the Central Station. Now there is Palmette two streets away from the Bistro. The restaurant sports a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu and has overtly French tones. Enjoy dishes such as bisque d’homard, steak tartare, oysters and pan-fried coquilles. “We started Palmette out of love for modern French cuisine,” explains Alberts. “It’s rich and leaves enough room to give an international twist.”
