TRIED & TESTED: NEVY AMSTERDAM

November 29, 2010

Most striking feature:

The restaurant is build directly on the water and because this is a fish restaurant, physically speaking, you can see the fish swim where you’re sitting. Well we don’t live in the Cariben so the water is not so clear but hey, you need to have a little imagination. I visited Nevy during the opening in 2008 and I know that I’ve tried some of the best sushi on their raw bar and some oysters at the entrance.

This december chef Tom Aikens left his London home to prepare a three (40 euro) and four (50 euro) course meal for Nevy. Aikens is known for his excellent fish preparations. Till 19 december.

TRIED & TESTED: MAZZO AMSTERDAM

November 18, 2010

Most striking feature:

The Dear Ingo Pendant chandelier from Moooi. It’s like five spiders inspecting the restaurant area. That in combination with chalkboard walls, different seating area’s (restaurant, lounge and bar) and an huge MAZZO sign at the entrance makes this the grown up sister from Witteveen. Okay enough about the design, what about the food? We ordered a pizza pear and gorgonzola (14,50 euro) and it tasted delicious (a bit too crusty, but a good combination between the pear and cheese). Mazzo is open from breakfast till late: definitely a place to return. Because this is one of the popular places in Amsterdam right now, make sure to book a table in advance.

Mazzo did have beautiful professional pictures. If you want to see them, check out Wejetset: a blog worth following. These are my not so professional photos. But you’ll get the picture 😉
