72 Middenweg
Amsterdam , Netherlands

Located in a sunny, coach house attached to the 17th-century Huize Frankendael manor on the outskirts of Amsterdam, Merkelbach infuses tradition into its often-changing, French-influenced menu designed by “slow food” devotee chef Geert Burema. Sourcing from local farms, he makes favorites like grilled sea bass, duck breast with red cabbage, and pumpkin ravioli with roasted pistachios. The dining room preserves the original condition of the building with dark stone floors, huge windows, small wood tables, and white walls with cyan trim. In warm weather, the patio overlooking the formal garden becomes especially popular.
