25 x Restaurants (and more) that open soon in Amsterdam

the new restaurants in Amsterdam that open the doors soon

Latest update: 28-11-2017

You probably follow Your Little Black Book because you want to be the first to know about new hotspots that are opening their doors in Amsterdam. Sometimes we KNOW about the new places coming to town, but sometimes there’s just NOTHING to tell yet besides a logo and some rumours about the concept. No information about the menu or the interior design, and often not even more than a Facebook page with a logo. On Your Little Black Book I like to hear the story behind a new hotspot, talk to the new owners, and when they open of course also try and taste the food. BUT, we listened to you and will share our weekly scoops with you in this blog. Then YOU will have a great story when talking to your colleagues or friends ;-). And as soon as we can share the WHOLE STORY about the place, you’ll be the first one to know on Your Little Black Book!

These are the new hotspots in amsterdam to keep an eye on:

  1. Izakaya Sora: Izakaya Sora from Sapporo SORA Ramen opens a new ramen spot at the Albert Cuypstraat.
