Museumstraat 2, 1071 XX Amsterdam, Netherlands

Adjacent to the famed Rijksmuseum, this restaurant has garnered praise—and a Michelin star—for its inventive, Dutch-influenced cuisine that emphasizes locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Given the Netherlands’ proximity to the North Sea, the menu leans heavily on seafood—Zeeland oysters and mussels are particular standouts—but its chef, Joris Bijdendijk, also has a way with vegetables, bringing out their full flavor in dishes like spit-roasted celeriac or a beautifully composed tribute to Dutch beans. There’s a six-course tasting menu priced at €67.50 (around $80) and an abbreviated three-course lunch menu for €37.50 (around $45). Reservations are recommended.
