Hg2 : The Hedonist

De Belhamel

In this former grocers shop, Victor Kerbosch and Stijn van der Linden have created a cosy and complete food experience. Back in the early 1900s, A family of grocers would flog their wares from the ground floor and live in the compact mezzanine space above it. Period touches remain, but the predominant decorative flourishes are more art deco, like the ornate coloured glass and brass finishes of mirrors around the dining area, beautiful old lamps and tiled walls and a separate bar (for diners only) that may be one of the most beautiful and relaxing reception areas in any restaurant in The Netherlands. In the summer, the patio doors are thrown open and tables laid on the opposite kerb at a corner where Brouwersgracht and Herengracht meet, which catches the late evening sun. The menu is a simple collection of well done, high-end European dishes, with the rack of venison particularly good. A set menu is excellent value at ?35 each. Bookings are genuinely essential.
