Top chef Nick Bril is stepping down after five years as culinary manager for August, the restaurant of the design hotel of the same name in the Groen Kwartier. He announced this himself on his social media. “I am confident that under the leadership of the talented team, the hotel will only go from strength to strength and reach new heights,” said Bril.

“After a fruitful period of collaboration and growth, we are now parting ways and today we announce the end of our collaboration. It was an honor for me to be part of this unique journey, in which we together deepened the culinary identity and guest experience at August,” the top chef writes on his social media.

According to Bril, August must now continue to take shape without his vision. “I hope to have made a valuable contribution to August’s DNA. I am confident that under the leadership of the talented team, the hotel will only go from strength to strength and reach new heights. I cherish the wonderful moments we shared. My sincere thanks go to the August team, and in particular to Mouche, Laurent, my right hand Pieter (August’s sous chef, ed.), Mathilde and Hanne. Your commitment, dedication and friendship made this trip extraordinary.”

“Commitment, dedication and passion”

“Nick Bril has guided us from the start in 2019 in shaping our culinary identity and the DNA of the restaurant, under the leadership of chef Pieter Starmans. We would like to thank Nick for his efforts, dedication and passion. Thanks in part to his efforts, August’s bar and restaurant have become popular destinations for both local and international guests, with a creative, elegant and seasonal menu,” the August team wrote on social media.

The investigation into the collision of British assistant chef Joe Claridge (37) is still ongoing. At the beginning of January, Bril ran over his assistant chef after a New Year’s party with a lot of alcohol. The consequences were disastrous: the father of a four-year-old son hovered between life and death for 51 days. The man recently woke up from his coma, but the rehabilitation will be difficult. Despite a positive breath test, Bril had gotten behind the wheel of his Land Rover.
