Expert review of Lab111
Amsterdam is good at adapting buildings to new uses, and here is a case in point. Lab111, part of an avant-garde arts centre, is housed in a monumental brick building that was once a medical anatomy laboratory. The centre has exhibition spaces and shows films. Every Wednesday, it lays on a film with dinner, in a special screening room - see the website for more info.
Interesting, creative, modern European dishes are on offer for dinner. I recently had a pleasing artichoke salad, followed by ravioli with celeriac and truffle shavings. Lunches are simpler: soup, sandwiches, uitsmijter - fried eggs on ham and bread.
The dining room is a striking space, with black walls painted with multi-coloured beams and surgical operating lamps over tables. Arty locals make up the clientele - you're likely to be the only tourist here.
Casual - my waitress was in dungarees - and when I visited on the slow side.
In a residential area north of the Vondelpark.
Three-course dinners cost around 28-35 euros - good value for Amsterdam. For lunch, you're looking at 5-10 euros. Film/dinner combos cost 35 euros (reserve for these).
