Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Before it opens its doors to customers, Marit Beemster’s dining room is a sea-green box with only a few tables and tidy chairs waiting to be occupied and disarranged. Wildflowers bow over the tables, coloured glasses shine, while birds and owls pretend to be alert. In a time when eating out doesn’t necessarily mean going to a restaurant, it’s a joy to discover Marits, home restaurant in the East side of Amsterdam. It’s just like eating at a friend’s house, with a 3 courses menu made with local and organic ingredients. Strictly no fish or meat.
