Route
“For ultrachic shopping, look beyond Amsterdam’s city center to Beethovenstraat. Here, you’ll find Dutch designer PAUW and the English Hatter, which is a posh spot for men’s fashion. You’ll also find a collection of perfume shops, chocolatiers and fromageries worth the trip to the upscale Zuid district.”

Restaurant
$$$
“A 'pop-up' restaurant (albeit for 10+ years) in a former cloister (and state monument). In summer dinner is served under the leafy trees of Beatrix park, in winter in the round chapel of the former monastery. Great organic cuisine, some ingredients grown in their own garden. As it is officially a pop-up, the kitchen is outdoor in a tent and centres around a big wood fired oven/bbq.”
