Bar & Grill Marathonweg

From the same chef as Amsterdam’s fancy and trendy Lion Noir, there is now a new restaurant: Marathonweg.
It’s situated in the south area of Amsterdam, near the old olympic stadium. At this place, they have heard from gemutlichkeit before: candles, amazing flower pieces and cosy little tables and chairs. But not at the least they know how to cook. They serve good meat, and tasty fish, all grilled on a special charcoal grill. No complicated dishes or ingredients, but what they serve is simply good and tasty. But the best feature is without a doubt the huge sunny terrace which is open in summertime.

The Harbour Club

Rumor has it the Harbour Club is going to be Amsterdam’s place-to-be for the summer of 2012. Despite it’s less than central location in the East part of Amsterdam (Zeeburg) this new hotspot might still be worth while paying a visit. Why? A. Because the East area is starting to grow out into a trendy part of town full of good restaurants and bars, and honestly: this place is unlike anything else Amsterdam has to offer. B. The Harbour Club has an enormous terrace right by the water, including beautiful loungy sofa’s and chairs. C. It’s a restaurant, cocktail bar and night club all-in-one. And D. Because every now and then there’s a DJ playing music in the restroom area. That’s a first.

If you happen to stay in St. Petersburg during the summer, you should definitely pay a visit to Terrassa. The menu is extensive and diverse but truth be told: the real reason you go to Terrassa is to enjoy one of the city’s best views. The restaurant is located on the top floor of the tallest building in the historical center and from the outside terrace you can see the Kazansky cathedral and the famous Nevski Prospekt street. The interior is modern and bright and because of the open kitchen you might just be able to catch a glimpse of head chef Alexander Belkovich, who started here at only 21 years old. With great enthusiasm he prepares interesting dishes ranging from Italian to Asian cuisine. Reservations are a must at Terrassa. Be sure to indicate that you want to be seated outside with views of the cathedral; you will not be disappointed!
