Who we are


Our goal at Frites Atelier Amsterdam is to make delicious frites available to everyone. To achieve this goal, we collaborated with acclaimed chef Sergio Herman. After eighteen months of potato-tasting, fryer-testing, and venue-spotting, we opened our first aterlier in The Hague, Utrecht, Arnhem, and Antwerp.


Our roots

Frites Atelier Amsterdam was born out of a love for frites. However, we felt the chip-eating experience left much to be desired, so we decided to launch our own concept. We couldn't think of anything better than pairing a guilty pleasure with a beautiful location.

Our name

We came up with the idea for our atelier, Frites Atelier, in Amsterdam – hence the name. Amsterdam is also the location of our flagship store, which will open later this year. Add to that our international ambition of introducing a traditional Dutch delicacy to the international community, and our concept was born.


Sergio Herman

Renowned Dutch chef Sergio Herman had a twenty-five year run as chef at Oud Sluis, a family restaurant in Sluis in the Dutch province of Zeeland. Sergio has been awarded three Michelin stars since 2005 and was featured in The World's 50 Best Restaurants eight consecutive times. Despite his success, he decided to close Old Sluis in December 2013 to focus on new projects. In addition to his restaurants The Jane** in Antwerp, Pure C* in Cadzand, and Frites Atelier, Sergio also plans to open a new harbour restaurant later this year in Cadzand. Sergio is known for his drive and perfectionism. Everything has to be "fucking perfect", in his words, which explains why he spent more than eighteen months experimenting with our chip recipes, toppings, and fresh sauces.

Piet Boon ®

Because we believe that frites deserve a unique surrounding, all our Ateliers are co-designed by Studio Piet Boon. The idea behind Piet’s concept is to give our Ateliers the look of an old-fashioned French-Amsterdam brasserie and put our heroes, our frites, on a pedestal.

 

Natural Tableware

We attach great importance to the origin, quality, and sustainability of our products, which is why we chose to partner with Natural Tableware. The company has collaborated with Sergio for years because of the sustainable nature and aesthetic quality of the products. Our sachets, bags, and trays are made from sustainable FSC-certified paper and are 100% compostable. We are committed to using beautiful, clean, and practical materials, both now and in the future.


Artists in residence

In addition to chips, we also have a passion for fashion, art, and design. We therefore work in close collaboration with several artists and designers, who custom-make everything in our Ateliers. Our friend Kamagurka drew the comics on our napkins, Frederik Molenschot provided us with stunning and high-quality stoves, and Cor Unum made the ceramic pots for our sauces. In addition to being a great place to enjoy chips, we also want to become a platform for talent, which is why we chose the word atelier or 'studio' as our name.
