  • The Scene:

    It's not your usual tourist restaurant mainstay located in the Latin Quarter of Amsterdam in the Pijp neighborhood. A cozy one-room space with split-level dining room is lined in wide-plank hardwood floors with simple walls of walnut wainscoting strewn with whimsical collection of modern art. White glove service could compete with the best in Amsterdam, especially since received its first Michelin star in 2010 for its inventive cuisine derived mostly for the local Albert Cuyp day-market.†

  • The Food:

    A dressed-up collection of local and in-the-know visitors from the Dylan and fancier Amsterdam hotels arrive to this masterpiece dining room thatís one of the toughest reservations in town. A prix fixe 5-course tasting menu offers additional wine pairing for legendary cuisine that combines some of Hollandís most heralded meat purveyors with boutique vintages off the beaten path of most local wine menus. The menu is derivative of the local nearby Albert Cuyp day-market where most of the produce is sourced, creating elaborate smoked salmon, homemade pasta and seafood creations followed by more traditional grilled meat and chicken dishes unrivaled in the neighborhood.

  • Last Word

    Only open for dinner, expect a more formal experience than most area restaurants that are open for mid-day lunch as well as evening service.
