Quick update on restaurants in the Jordaan

New in Amsterdam: Roebling's - Story154

Here’s an update on restaurant development and empty spaces in the Jordaan area. The neighbourhood I live in has quality restaurants like Caffé Toscanini, Restaurant Daalder and Tijger & de Vis. Next to these restaurants, there are some nice-to-haves like Cafe Thijssen, Finch, ‘t Smalle, Winkel43 and Noordwest on the Noordermarkt. Yes, we are spoiled in this area..

Empty spaces everywhere

When we walk our dog, we notice the beauty of this hood. And also see a lot of empty (corner) houses, offices and premises available for rent. For example the lovely corner of the former bakery on the Prinsenstraat and Keizersgracht, the former sneaker shop No Boys Allowed on the Prinsenstraat, on the Herenstraat, corner Lindenstraat and Noordermarkt (behind the church) is empty at the moment but something is cooking there. Plus a few on the Westerstraat like Headfirst and more down the street (though couldn’t find Funda links for those)..

Restaurant development

So from these empty spaces that became more and more the last period, it’s great to see that new things are coming: the Indian restaurant next to SLA on the Westerstraat has been transformed into Yama Ramen, the opening of restaurant Roebling’s on the Haarlemmerstraat, restaurant Casa Juan is turned into De Curtis at the moment, the coming of The Beef Steak Club on Lijnbaansgracht (although when will it open?), Daalder recently beautifully renovated its restaurant and Casper Reinders is momentarily redoing the old Proust on the Noordermarkt into Libertine Petit Café.

It’s great to see that people are investing in the Jordaan area again and that we can welcome so many new kids on the block. Now if we can only find a few cool brands who can enter those monumental spaces on the canals…
XX, Michelle
