Ron Gastrobar Paris recently opened in Amsterdam.
Now French cuisine is added to that. It’s French bistro but in a rather more upscale setting.
When Ron Blaauw first made his move to introduce his quick and affordable fine dining concept, others were quick to dismiss the idea. But nowadays, it seems like it’s every chef’s dream to operate an informal restaurant and to move from the boundaries of cooking on a Michelin level.
Brown wood line the interior of the restaurant and it’s decorated with charming French adornments – remnants from its predecessor Nacional but now housing a new owner.
The menu features a feast of French dishes. From a classic fruit de mer section to smaller bites such as artichoke with served with a tangy mustard sauce, a beautiful slow-cooked pork belly served with sauerkraut to nostalgic cod fingers with the softest batter you can find.
Like all Ron Gastrobar concepts, portions are somewhere between a starter and a main. On average the restaurant serves two dishes per person.
That is, without dessert of course. The dessert menu is one not to miss. My advice: leave some room for the creme brûlée – you may want to order two!
