Named for Henri Thijs, a Dutch hospitality pioneer and student of Escoffier, who co-founded the famous Amsterdam restaurant and delicatessen known as Dikker & Thijs some 100 years ago, this latest incarnation of the restaurant reopened in May 2016. Gone are the stiff white tablecloths and fussy formality: instead, there?s an eager young team, aiming-for-hipster décor ? think blackboards, bare bulbs and faux-face brick wallpaper ? and a menu of modern (mostly French) classics.
A new style of French cuisine in Amsterdam
You can find all the delights of a French brasserie on the perfectly curated menus at Thijs. From French onion soup through to confit duck and an ever-changing dessert menu, it&rsquo:s a culinary journey through the ultimate foodie region. If you&rsquo:re short on time, the pre-theatre menu gives you a taste of the best dishes.
