Most striking feature:
Since the opening a year ago The Dutch is a popular place for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and cocktails. Last year contributor Karianne Vermaas visited the place and said:
“The sign outside attracted my attention right away. The Dutch…would it be all about Dutch treats such as bitterballen and frikadellen? Luckily it was all but that! The Dutch is an American restaurant, bar and oyster room and it is inspired by local cafés and bistros, as well as seaside shacks and roadside joints. Actually it represents the mix of cultural influences that make New York City so wonderful. The Dutch has a very comfortable atmosphere and definitely is hip without trying too hard to be the most happening place in town. Not a big surprise maybe, if you consider the fact that it’s the work of interior designers Roman & Williams (also known for their work at the Standard Hotel en the Ace Hotel). Loved the Skirt Steak Rollatini and my father enjoyed his Pecan Duck with Organic Dirty Rice very much. Breakfast, lunch and brunch are coming soon, they told us.”
Well now, May 2012, I’ve tried the brunch with granola and orange juice. On Saturday the place is packed and it’s hard to get a seat in the front of the restaurant. That’s the best place to be seated because the large windows open up onto the street. Perfect seats for some Soho people watching.
