It’s a cross between a restaurant and traiteur, serving fresh Italian food.

You can’t get much more authentic than that….buon appetito!

 

Coffee Sometime

I love de Nordics and I love coffee.

So Coffee Sometime is probably the place that offers delicious coffees combined with amazing cakes in Scandinavian style.

They have nice Danish furniture from Frama and beautiful ceramic tableware.

 

 

 

Wilde Zwijnen

Restaurant Wilde Zwijnen is a cozy modern nordic restaurant, located in Amsterdam Oost.

The interior is not typical Dutch, but with a Scandinavian touch. The restaurant uses fresh seasonal ingredients. You can eat in the restaurant or at The Eetbar, where you can choose to sit at a table or at a bar.

They also have a terrace where you can have lunch or have dinner, or just enjoy a good glass of wine in the sun.

What I really love abouth this place, besides the good food and friendly staff is the handmade ceramic serving plates!

 

 

 

 

Cecconi’s

L’industrie, café restaurant in Paris

Café de L’industrie is located in Bastille. It is one of the better steakhouses in Paris and has fair prices and a lively ambiance, very Parisian. A simple and effective menu with classics, all for a reasonable price. It is nice to eat in a large space, which is still rare in Paris. This place feels like dining in a museum, the décor is made up of old pictures and paintings on the wall and old wood panelling in its original place.
