Lion Noir On bustling Reguliersdwarsstraat—a street filled with gay cafés and clubs—Lion Noir stands out for its sophisticated, French-tinged menu and wildly eclectic, nature-inspired decor. The dual-level restaurant’s deep-green interior is accented with assorted taxidermy, framed tapestries of forest scenes, tiny animal skeletons, and birdcages; over the working fireplace presides a large stuffed peacock. The casual first-floor bar is a cozy spot for cocktails and light bites; upstairs offers a more extensive menu of seafood and meat entrées, priced around €25 ($30). The garden terrace, open seasonally, is a calm oasis.
