The C of this Amsterdam restaurant?s name stands for celsius, and the menu focuses on the temperature at which the dishes are prepared, ranging from 200°C for tempura to -20 for desserts.
Situated in a recently renovated former newspaper office, where the same team ran popular pop-up restaurant Baut, the gimmick&rsquo:s in the name here. Instead of the expected three-course structure, the menu is organised by temperature zones, with &lsquo:raw and cold&rsquo: (0-20°:C) tartares and salads, fish and meats cooked at a &lsquo:low temperature&rsquo: (40-80°:C), &lsquo:steamed and cooked&rsquo: (100°:C) soups and pastas, and &lsquo:grilled and roasted&rsquo: (200 °:C) burgers and steaks.
Chef-owner and Dutch MasterChef Judge Michiel van der Eerde honed his skills at famous Michelin-starred establishments &ndash: and it shows. Finesse is not only to be found in the food, but in the decor, too: with a polished palette of dark neutrals, featuring brass, steel, wood, velvet, concrete and recycled leather, the spacious interior mixes modern, industrial elements with midcentury and neo-vintage influences. Guests can choose one of 20 bar seats surrounding the open kitchen, which was apparently inspired by L&rsquo:Atelier de Jol Robuchon in London: or they can sit at a regular table around the perimeter.
