French bistro classics at restaurant Hangar

French bistro classics at restaurant Hangar

Located at a former car park in Amsterdam Noord, you can find this restaurant called Hangar. It has a very stylish interior with round shapes made from corrugated iron plates, which gives it an industrial but warm and cosy atmosphere. The chef already cooked at Michelin-star level when he was 21 years old and you can definitely taste that. The dishes are inspired by the Mediterranean countries and the menu changes every six weeks. Only the French bistro classics (steak tartare, côte de boeuf etc) stay on the menu all year long. In summer you can side outside on the big terrace and overlook the Ij river.  Address: Aambeeldstraat 36.

De huiskamer van Rembrandt

De huiskamer van Rembrandt

In the non-touristy part of Amsterdam you will find De huiskamer van Rembrandt. It is located next to Rembrandtpark, that’s why this place is called ‘the living room of Rembrandt‘. As there aren’t that many nice cafés in this part of the city, the owner wanted to create a café where everybody feels at home. Its interior is inspired by all the cultures of this neighbourhood. You will find a mixture of Portuguese tiles, South American fabrics and Arabic woodcraft. In summer you can sit on the sunny terrace while overlooking the park or entertain yourself by playing some boules on one of the two courts. Address: Orteliuskade 5.
