At De Kas Restaurant in Amsterdam, farm fresh seems to be a bit of an understatement. The restaurant and dining areas are intimately intertwined with the actual nursery and farm where the fruits and vegetables used in ea Kas’ cuisine are grown and harvested.
Founder and owner Gert Jan Hageman can be found in the nursery and gardens daily, tending to Mediterranean vegetables, edible flowers and herbs. Harvesting takes place each day at sunrise, so only the freshest ingredients are used. Organic meats are locally sourced from one supplier, as are daily fish deliveries.
Guests are welcome to sit in one of the many dining areas, which each give a different view and experience. Choices include the main restaurant (pictured above), Garden Room, Patio Room, Greenhouse or Chef’s Table, where patrons can watch the chefs prepare food just feet away from the table in the kitchen.
Dinner is a three-course fixed menu for around 50 euros, with lunch being a little bit more casual. Those that love fresh ingredients in an idyllic environment will salivate over De Kas’ menu and location.
