When I was living in Amsterdam, all I kept hearing about was Morgan & Mees. It’s a great restaurant (part of a new hotel) which is located in West, just around the corner from where I was living in the Jordaan. If you have plans to visit Amsterdam this coming summer, this is one of my favourite little Dutch spots and I’d definitely recommend a visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The interior borrows some of the aesthetic of the historical building it’s housed in, but with a modern touch. Think oversized green plants mixed with dark wood floors, white walls and black modern lamps – yes please! The open kitchen allows contemporary dining and lends itself to a relaxed vibe – they serve both modern Mediterranean dishes and typical Dutch staples…I still find myself longing for bitterballen on a weekly basis!
