New restaurant: Frisk Haarlem
A couple of months ago I visited the quite new restaurant Frisk aan het Spaarne.
I already knew the building in which Frisk is housed: the former Droste chocolate factory.
Beautiful industrial heritage, which I love!
After renovation of the former factory, initially another cafe-restaurant was housed here (Chocoase), but that didn’t work out.
So now there is Frisk. Owned by the same couple that owns Het Veerkwartier, another cool restaurant on a unique location in Haarlem.
The restaurant’s interior has been designed and (hand-)made by a bunch of creative people, each responsible for a specific part of the decor.
They did a good job, since they turned the space into a light, hip place with great colours and furniture.
Lunch at Frisk Haarlem
So I thought it was time to check out Frisk aan het Spaarne (that’s the name of the river that flows through Haarlem). And what better way to do that then with two other bloggers and friends of mine: Greetje from the highly entertaining and very popular personal blog No Fear of Fashion and rising star and ‘senior street style’ photographer Misja from the blog MisjaB. By the way: Misja refers to her subjects as ‘slightly older’, not as ‘seniors’.
We decided to have lunch at Frisk and of course, as always, our meet up included lots of picture taking, lots of posing, chatting and having fun.
Three bloggers having lunch at Frisk Haarlem.
Frisk’s kitchen is based on the nordic kitchen, like e.g. smorgasbord and salmon.
Frisk is the Danish word for ‘fresh’ and that’s one of the words Frisk uses to describe what they stand for. Together with terms like: pure, healthy, seasonal, green and authentic.
Bloggers, fashion and pictures
Let me introduce my friends:
Misja is the professional photographer of the three.
Greetje and Misja both are really into fashion and style, which you see back in the focus of their blogs.
I like to take pictures and yes, I do like to dress nicely, but I can certainly not call myself a photographer nor a fashionista nor is fashion a big topic on my blog.
Not that that matters. All three of us need pictures for our blog and social media and we enjoy posing and photographing with this in mind.
Have you visited Frisk already? Did you like this place? Do you meet up with girlfriends and take pictures of one another?
