Truffle Week at te Pas Amsterdam

restaurant te pas - business cardRestaurant te Pas is organizing a special truffle menu next week, December 8 – 14.

I went to te Pas for Restaurantweek 2007. It’s a small restaurant, located just off Leidseplein on Lijnbaansgracht 274 and quite stylish, especially compared to the tourist traps in its immediate surroundings. te Pas, which is Dutch for “appropriate”, is quite appropriately run by the te Pas family. Brothers Evert and Hugo serve French / international food – nothing special but well executed and in a friendly setting.

You can go for a 3, 4, or 5 course menu.

I will go and hope that some delicious truffles will make up for the short and slush snow filled days of early December in Amsterdam…
