Farm by Table
RESTAURANT DE KAS
There might not be a more picturesque dinner location than inside this greenhouse at
the edge of a park in east Amsterdam, where
Jos Timmer and Wim de Beer - both Rijks
alumni - took the reins last spring. "We
want to show everyone the treasures of our
garden," Timmer says. "That a vegetable
isn't just a garnish, but also the main star."
To that end, the daily prix fixe orbits around
what they've grown themselves and fresh
finds from Dutch suppliers. If you're lucky,
your meal will include the roasted radicchio, served with a fabulous beurre blanc
made with a proprietary dashi vinegar.

Feast for the Senses
THE WHITE ROOM
White-and-gold interiors, gilded statues,
towering columns, and mammoth chandeliers set a dramatic scene inside this
nineteenth-century Dam Square dining
room. Prepare to indulge in four, six, or
eight courses created by chef Jacob Jan
Boerma and executed by chef de cuisine
Arturo Dalhuisen, who goes for "intense
flavors with fresh acidity and spices." The
menu travels the globe with the likes of
If BLEED, make it fit and center in
the DARK GRAY BOX.
Ads should have been designed
with bleed on all sides for balance
If NON-BLEED, make it fit and centered in the LIGHT GRAY BOX.
There are NO FOLIOS
for 1/2-page ad pages.
Amidst stunning natural beauty, this vibrant and elegant metropolis is located on

a day trip to Mount Titlis or the famous Jungfraujoch in the Bernese Oberland.
