Taksteeg 7 Amsterdam

A total insider pick, this charming small place near the Amsterdam Museum and the Rokin area opened in 2007 and has become a favorite with Amsterdammers. Owners Kirsten and Willem-Jan Hendriks prepare organic fare fresh from their own garden or, in the case of cheeses, bread, eggs and meat, from local farmers, about whom you can read on the menu. In other words, it’s the dream destination for a slow foodie. On a recent visit, I could have ordered every single dish on the small, frequently changing menu but finally settled on a steaming homemade turnip soup served with a large slab of sourdough bread and rich, yellow butter so delicious I wish I could have taken some home. The ambiance is peaceful and romantic, with fresh-cut flowers and flickering candles on the tables. Gartine is open only for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, and reservations are a must.
