The old Prodent factory in Amersfoort is nice. Very nice. You will find small creative companies next to an architecture firm and a place where they refurbish wooden boats. But the reason I’m here is because of new restaurant Hoog Vuur. A restaurant that not only looks great, but where you can also have high-quality food. In the interior we see lots of wood, lots of plants, long communal tables and three eye-catching wood ovens of Weltevree. The design agency we already know of Read more…

At Artte in the l’Eixample district of Barcelona art comes together with great food and tea (that explains the two t’s in the name). In the restaurant there’s a stage where they organize poetry, theatre and music performances, they also have a website where you can support local artists and throughout the whole property you will see beautiful pieces of art. The tropical print in the cafe is definitely striking. It’s only temporarily, because every few months they paint it white again and another artist gets the chance to fill the wall. Nice! Then there’s Read more…

Let’s start this week with a world premiere! An inside look of Nino Viejo: the newest restaurant of Albert Adrià and Paco Méndez in Barcelona. Only open for two days when I went there for dinner on Friday and I want to shout it from the rooftops: you must go here when you’re in Barcelona! Vale, let’s start with a short introduction before I tell you about my experience. Albert Adrià is the brother of Ferran Adrià, the man behind the legendary El Bulli restaurant, and he is rapidly changing the Sant Antoni and Poble Sec neighborhoods into a gastonomic heaven. First there was restaurant Tickets, then Pakta, Bodega 1900 and now there’s this new Mexican kid on the block called Nino Viejo. In this last restaurant Adrià works together with chef Paco Méndez. Born in Mexico, worked for El Bulli and now he has the ambition to be the best Mexican restaurant in the world – outside Mexico. Nino Viejo means old child which means that we should never lose our young spirit: therefore there’s no stiff atmosphere in this taqueria style restaurant, but it’s rather loose and casual but with extremely high service. If you, for example, take Read more…

From the same owners as Oval Barcelona comes the brand new Blitz Barcelona. Oval is a burger bar in l’Eixample and at Blitz they don’t focus on burgers, but on the most delicious sandwiches. From ‘normal’ ones to Frankfurter’s and Bikini’s. I’ve ordered a Bikini (croque monsieur) with jamon and cheese and it was really good. Can’t wait to try out more of the menu. Like the chicken sandwich or the one with tuna. If you don’t eat fish or meat they also have Read more…

The Vesper Hotel in Noordwijk opened its doors two weeks ago. It’s situated right on the beach and that’s why they call themselves the first boutique hotel on the Dutch shore. Michiel and Martijn van der Berg, two brothers who also own beach clubs Bries and Zuiderbad, opened this hotel and asked architect Bart Akkerhuis to help them with the design and interior. Akkerhuis works at Renzo Piano, the famous architect who is in the news right now with the forthcoming opening of the Pathe Fondation in Paris (see pictures of this stunning design here). Just like Read more…

Casper Reinders isn’t someone who stands still. Late last year he opened Chow on the Rozengracht and shortly afterwards his gallery Libertine. His restaurants Bocinq and Lion Noir are still a hit in the Amsterdam restaurant scene. And now there’s Nacional: a huge project on the Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen, better known as an extension of the Leidseplein, opposite the Apple Store and the Balie. A central location with a 24/7 atmosphere. That’s why Nacional is also open from breakfast to late dinner. Perfect if Read more…

3 reasons to go to Story in Helsinki:

  1. Not only the place looks stunning, the food is also good. Four of the best restaurateurs of Helsinki are behind it. One of them, Teemu Aura got a Michelinstar for his last restaurant (Grotesk).
  2. The interior is done by Joanna Laajisto, who also did the design for Bar & Co.
  3. Story is located in the Old Market Hall and offers wide views over the waterfront.

Let’s continue our journey through the newest spots in Ibiza immediately! After the post about Beachouse Ibiza, I love to share this new beach club with you, called Cotton Beach Club. The color white dominates in the interior (100% cotton ofcourse) and together with the view over the kind of clear blue sea you can only find in the Mediterranean, it makes Cotton Beach more than stunning place. You can have breakfast, brunch of lunch here (the team has experience with working at Cipriani in New York, Nobu in London and Read more…
