A culinary adventure awaits: Vinkeles at The Dylan Amsterdam
With the New Year detox now a distant memory with most of us feeling thoroughly fed-up with calorie counting and crash diets, now is the perfect time to retox with a culinary escape to Amsterdam. The city’s most stylish bolthole, The Dylan Amsterdam, is inviting guests to enjoy a tantalising array of gastronomic experiences, guaranteed to delight food lovers wishing to indulge their tastebuds once again.
The best place to start the retox would be at The Dylan’s historic Michelin starred restaurant, Vinkeles, to enjoy mouth-watering masterpieces prepared by celebrated Chef Dennis Kuipers who continuously finds inspiration from fresh ingredients around the globe. Foodies will relish the opportunity for a front row seat in the kitchen at the Chef’s Table for an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience to interact with Dennis and his team.
What better way to see the city than from the water on board the hotel’s own boat ‘Vinkeles on the Water’ for a culinary canal-side adventure where delicious dishes are served in a completely renovated 19th century saloon vessel during a beautiful boat trip through Amsterdam. The highlight of the journey is a live cooking session by Dennis himself.
The Dylan’s true anti-detox remedy can be found in its iconic High Wine experience. Famous across the city, High Wine is the hotel’s stylish take on the quintessential British afternoon tea including a fine selection of seasonal wines from the hotel’s cellar, paired with delicious seasonal savoury bites, guaranteed to delight all palettes. This High-Wine concept is also available for larger groups of up to 14 people and is served from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.
Amsterdam is brimming with gourmet delights and The Dylan’s own award-winning concierge Michael Wigman is always on hand to share his knowledge and point guests in the right direction of the city’s best culinary and cultural delights including:
– To build up an appetite beforehand, Michael recommends a walk through Europe’s oldest Zoo ‘Artis Royal Zoo’.
– For a spot of post-lunch culture take in a tour of the contemporary photography museum FOAM in the northern part of Amsterdam.
– Book The Dylan’s private guided bike tour for a day of exploration with the special Amstel/Garden excursion.
– Shop at a local clothing designer Olaf Hussein or discover unique pieces of ceramic at neighbouring J.C. Herman Ceramics who have previously custom made a few pieces for The Dylan.
Head back to the hotel for a delicious appetizer at the city’s ultimate hotspot Bar Brasserie OCCO, which recently introduced a refreshing non-alcoholic VirGIN drink made with their exclusive homemade Gin brand that gives it the significant quality and refreshing taste.
