On the hunt for the best new restaurants in Amsterdam? We’re here to help.
New restaurants open in Amsterdam almost every day, but how do you separate the great from the good? Well, we've done the hard work for you (no big deal, of course, to try out all the amazing new hotspots). And we’ve rounded up a list with our favourite new restaurants. These are the hotspots you want to book today.
1. Yuzu Dining Bar
After a successful launch in The Hague, Yuzu opens its doors in Amsterdam. This modern Japanese Yakitori bar, founded by three friends, has a surprising menu bursting with Asian influences. Yuzu combines the best of Japanese, Korean and Chinese cuisine with a "head to tail" policy. Good news: their popular signature dishes are on the menu in Amsterdam too, such as the 'Crispy Rice Chips' and 'Chicken Gyoza'. Come try and taste it from Wednesday through Saturday.
Location: Kerkstraat 59, Amsterdam
2. Next NDSM
What’s next? Next on the NDSM-werf! All you need to know: shared dining, open daily, Amsterdam-Noord, and an amazing interior. High windows and an impressive bar. Next is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a drink until (according to the website) as late as possible. Hop on the ferry and step right into the spacious building. The menu features a variety of dishes inspired from all over the world (very vegan-friendly).
Locatie: NDSM-Kade 2, Amsterdam
Yes, yet another new vegan gem to add to our list of favourite vegan restaurants: Poppy’s. This vegan paradise will satisfy even the most enthusiastic carnivore. Fish or meat lover? Poppy's also serves meat and fish dishes. But whatever you decide to eat, all the bites are tasty (and will look good on ‘the Gram’). Let’s discover this new shared dining and finger food concept in the middle of the Pijp. Highly recommended!
