This bistro is located in the Beurs van Berlage. Contemporary classics with a Dutch touch is served. This approach is also reflected in the elegant interior, where authentic, monumental elements are combined with a modern look. In the middle of the bistro a large island bar that is ideal for a drink is situated. In this iconic location with a rich history, Bistro Berlage is ready for the future.
The enthusiastic team is led by chef Herb van Drongelen and manager Diederik Luijt. Van Drongelen, former chef at the Ysbreeker and Hyatt Regency in Birmingham, starts a new culinary adventure in Amsterdam with Bistro Berlage. The menu features contemporary classics with their own signature that associate with the rich history of the stock exchange building and its place in Amsterdam. The ingredients are fresh every day and are prepared with care and attention. Local products are used, like the bread of bakery Mama, the cheese of Fromagerie Kef, meat of Lindenhoff and wildlife of Brandt en Levie.
In addition to beautiful meat and fish dishes (think of a dry aged beef loin with red wine gravy and chips or a red gurnard fillet with parsley root muslin, spinach and sauce of Zeeland mussels), Bistro Berlage also serves a number of tasty vegetarian dishes. On the lunch menu you will find a puffed beet salad with plum, Dutch goat and sheep cheese, cranberries and walnut and on the dinner menu roasted cauliflower with Jerusalem artichoke, smoked almond, crumb cheese and leek ash oil can be found.
The colours of the interior will spring in the eye immediately! The interior was developed in collaboration with Rein Rambaldo of De Horeca Fabriek. The monumental character was cherished and supplemented with a modern, elegant interior. The authentic vaults inspired the round shapes in the design. The blue colour of the three tile panels by the Dutch artist Jan Toorop is reflected in the furniture. The large island bar with copper scales invites for a drink and offers a cosy spot to have your dinner at the bar. The combination of high and low seats and round and square tables creates a dynamic character.
