living room of amsterdam gets a compleet renovation

Who hasn’t heard of this café? The icon of the Leidseplein, Café Americain Amsterdam, will close on November 6 for a complete renovation. In the 50s this was already thé spot where Amsterdammers came together. Now it’s transformed into a modern brasserie that again will be a second home for all people of Amsterdam. The menu and interior get a fresh twist and we can’t wait for the end result. The restaurant will be reopened in mid-December 2017. Exciting!

What can we expect? High quality, accessible style and lots of personality, according to Café Americain. The kitchen team is from the reopening under the leadership of signature chef Peter Gast. The classic dishes get a new twist like the bouillabaisse, vitello tonato, French onion soup, shrimp cocktail and the new signature tartar. Amsterdam products are complemented with Dutch ingredients. Nice: three different trolleys are introduced: a tartar, patisserie and dessert trolley!

The bar will soon be the new center of Café Americain Amsterdam. The bar will have a creative cocktail menu and coffee from Vascobelo. Not familiar with Vascobelo? No problem, because soon you can have tastings of local spirits and products of him. The modern design was designed by Studio Linse and combines the rich history of Café Americain with new influences. The current Art Nouveau decor will remain, but gets a modern twist. But don’t worry, the original Tiffany lamps and stained-glass windows of the current Café Americain will stay.
