Expert review of Fifteen Amsterdam
"Jamie woz ere" was the spray-painted message on one of the walls of Fifteen Amsterdam when it opened back in 2004. He rarely is there, in fact - but the concept, of training up underprivileged youngsters to be chefs - is the same as in his other Fifteen restaurants.
Pukka modern Italian nosh, using fresh ingredients (Dutch where possible). The menu, which changes every few weeks, is shortish but interesting: perhaps marinated fillets of mackerel with beetroot, a mussels risotto, slow-roasted shoulder of pork, and an apple, cinnamon and raisin tart with butterscotch syrup.
Think open-plan kitchen, graffiti art on walls, and well-spaced tables over a big space. When it first opened, the place had a real buzz to it - it's much easier to get a table now. You can dine on an outdoor terrace overlooking the IJ waterway in good weather.
Friendly, eager, efficient.
In the Pakhuis Amsterdam, a warehouse near the cruise terminal. From the Centraal Station, it's just two stops on tram 26, or a 15-minute walk.
Three-course dinners, upwards of 35 euros a head, excluding drinks.
