Exceptional Food & Beverage facilities
The Grand is a real landmark of Amsterdam that has matured through the centuries and enriched by countless special events. However, it also has a name in the culinary field, with clear influences from the school of grand master Bocuse; the founder of international cuisine. Since 2013, restaurant Bridges holds a Michelin star and since 2016 Executive Chef Andrès Delpeut has held sway in the kitchen. Wine Director Lotte Wolf makes sure the best wine pairings are offered for the various dishes.
Restaurant Bridges consists of two different areas that each have their own identity. Bridges Dining makes dining at Michelin star level accessible thanks to the relaxed Amsterdam atmosphere. The menu, in which fish-based dishes occupy a prominent role, can be enjoyed either in the restaurant, at the Chef’s Table in the heart of the kitchen or in the private dining area. Bridges BarBistro offers an all-day menu; from a full evening of wining & dining to a relaxing drink and everything in between. Bridges BarBistro’s menu has influences from all over the world and does not consist of the standard pre-, main-course and desserts, but of dishes that can be combined to your liking. The centerpiece of the restaurants is the large marble destination bar where you can enjoy a delicious aperitif, a nice glass of wine or a festive cocktail.
In addition, The Flying Dutchman, decorated as a traditional Dutch brown café, is the ideal place for a drink with friends or family. The colourful Library ‘Or’ offers a relaxing atmosphere, where you can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee or The Grand Afternoon Tea.
