Aan de Poel** – Amstelveen (October 2018)

We were back at Aan de Poel** yet again…

Further to my review of the lunch Chantal and I had there a couple of weeks earlier, Koen and Erica also wanted to see the remodelled restaurant. We needed little persuasion to join them for dinner early October as we had lately primarily gone there for lunches only.

So close together, the menu of Aan de Poel hadn’t changed yet. Therefore, I had the same same courses as 4-course lunch (the duck and lobster dishes were my 2 additional ones), but Chantal actually had 4 new courses that evening.

All delightful again: the regular 6-course Chef’s menu (EUR 119), the vegetarian menu (EUR 99) as well as the wine pairings. Here are some of the pictures of the various courses.
