You may have already seen this name pop up in my weekend tips last week. BAUT is a succesfull concept that changes location almost every year. One of the previous BAUT locations was in an old department store in the heart of Amsterdam! The moving circus has found a new home in an old chapel at Spaarndammerstraat 460, Amsterdam West. The industrial building is transformed into a stunning restaurant, bar and upper floor, with a spectacular interior! This a a sneak peek…
In the upcoming 18 months this BAUT will be a unique spot offering a rebel mix of food, drinks, music and culture. The restaurant serves lunch & dinner. On the menu you find dishes like corn fed chicken with truffle & hazelnut, risotto with pistachio and burrata and a Vietnamese Bahn Mi Sandwich. During the day, the bar is an excellent spot for coffee and lunch. At night the bartenders will mix some devilish drinks for you. How about a BAUT Sour Bitch with Ketel One Vodka, Crémant d’Alsace, passionfruit and lime. Cheers!
A special part of this new venue is the upper floor of BAUT: ‘BovenBAUT’. This floor will be a place for exhibitions & presentations on Wednesdays and on Fridays they kick of the weekend with live art, music & cocktails. Check the Facebookpage for the program of the week.

I was one of the lucky bastards who got invited to the preview press dinner and almost fell of my seat when they poured me a glass of Coppola wine! My friend from Belize and director of the Godfather movies… that too. Coppola wine is not that well known in The Netherlands yet, so the fact that I just stayed at 2 of Coppola’s resorts and they serve his wine here this evening is just AMAZING. The bread with dark, truffle mayonnaise is extremely dangerous. My absolute favorite dish of the night is the sea bream, with parsnip, cauliflower and beurre noisette.. Oh, and the divine coconut crème brulée! Bon Appétit!
