One thing not to miss in Amsterdam
Set in a 20's greenhouse De Kas is one of many highlights in our newly released Wallpaper* City Guide app
Deep in the east of Amsterdam, this 1926 greenhouse is now home to a restaurant, which, since opening in 2001, has steadily become the city’s forerunner of all that is locally produced and sourced. The daily Mediterranean-inspired set menus are based around fresh vegetables and herbs, harvested at sunrise by founder and owner Gert Jan Hageman in an adjoining garden and nearby nursery.
These ingredients are then matched with the best of what De Kas’ organic meat and fish suppliers have to offer, delivering dishes such as crusty potato pie, and grilled sea bass or lamb chop served with a salad of edible flowers. Lunch is available on weekdays only, and in summer it can be taken outdoors on the patio. De Kas is closed on Sundays. Kamerlingh Onneslaan 3, T 462 4562, www.restaurantdekas.nl
