9 X new RESTAURANTS IN AMSTERDAM that you want to visit

Poké Perfect Kinkerstraat: Poké Perfect at the Kinkerstraat has finally opened its doors. Great, ’cause now halve of the city doesn’t have to jump on the bike for a half an hour for a poké bowl or sushirrito!

Restaurant Floreyn: Restaurant Braque on the Albert Cuypstraat made place for Restaurant Floreyn where you can discover the Dutch cuisine once again. Flavours and sents of old times will be brought back to life again. Nice: the menu changes every month because the ingredients they use are seasonal.

A Beautiful Mess: A Beautiful Mess is a pop-up lunchrestaurant in the laundry room of the former Bijlmerbajes. You can come here 4 days a week for a lunch, but on Fridays also for mezze and BBQ. Yum! Good food, and also a good cause, founded by Refugee Company.

Escobar: For Spanish dishes and drinks you have to visit Escobar. This spot in de Pijp is open till late and during the weekend even until 3 am. So want to have some drinks with friends? Visit Escobar, sangria it is!

Da Portare Via Willemsparkweg: This place is open for a little while, but earned its place in this list. Team YOURLBB tested this pizzeria and we’re convinced that also you want to try the avocado pizza and grilled octopus!

Marits eetkamer: Maybe it looks different on the pictures, but Marits Eetkamer really is a restaurant in a living room! where Marits cooks vegetarian dishes three nights a week. You can pick a 3-, 4- or 5-course menu that changes every month, and let them surprise you

Rosie’s: Rosie’s on the Rozengracht in the center of Amsterdam, is a place to visit soon for casual dining. Nice for date night with your lover or a fun night with friends. What you can order here? Think of vegetarian Surinamese patty, white asparagus with cider sauce, a potato salad and a lemon parfait for dessert.

Cafe Keppler: How nice, a new spot in Amsterdam North. From now on you can go to Café Keppler, an all-day café with nice sandwiches, drinks and more. Perfect for a sunny day or when you want to escape the city.

Kanaal Noord: Ok, Kanaal-Noord is actually, if we have to be very precise, in Zaandam, not Amsterdam. De Hemkade here is totally hot and happening. Kanaal-Noord is more than a city beach where you can enjoy the sunshine with friends. There is also an outdoor and covered restaurant and terrace runned by 2 chefs educated by Jamie Olivier. Look, that sounds promised.
