141 Utrechtsedwarsstraat
Amsterdam , Netherlands

Located in a small alley by an Amstel canal, this elegant French restaurant reflects the English heritage and Japanese culinary training of its chef-owner, Jean Beddington. Dishes like pheasant in miso gravy or seared tuna steak with horseradish and wasabi sauce are representative of the thoughtful, prix fixe menu that changes regularly. The pace is unhurried and dishes are served artfully, in restrained amounts, on simple white plates. The open kitchen can be viewed from the the dining room, which is small and intimate, and includes a black-on-white color scheme and soft lighting.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Roberto Pepin, who has worked with Alain Ducasse, is the newest chef at this high-profile spot on the Arno. Tuscan favorites, such as steak and game, dominate his menu, but he also incorporates modern touches, like mustard salsa, which he serves with roast pork. The impressive wine list has great Italian vintages by the glass.

We loved: Chestnut pasta with wild boar sauce.
