HOLTKAMP CROQUET, THE CAPITAL CROQUET
Local food in the capital kitchen.
Call us overeager, but at Capital Kitchen we really got a thing for local produce. Simply because we don’t think it's very smart to bring ingredients from far away unless it’s really really necessary. And you’d be surprised if you discovered what great products the greater region of Amsterdam has to offer.
That's exactly the reason why you will find the croquets* and pastries of Patisserie Holtkamp on our menu. Other than that, you we serve the nuts from Gotjé, the tea from Kruidenthee Amsterdam and the Amsterdam roasted coffee from LOT61. Our meat, our veggies, and many many more fresh and honest products come from local suppliers. Check our menu if you don’t believe it.
Besides locality, we convincingly work with brands and food producers that have a heart for the environment, animals and people. Because a funky plate of food or one of our signature cocktails won’t taste so good if they’re not sustainable…
*The croquets and ‘bitterballen’ from Holtkamp are definitely the best in the world. If anyone tells you differently, defriend at once.

A dish just needs to look delightful. That is why I always pay a lot of attention to the use of colors in the dishes that are created in my kitchen. Colors on a plate that add up to each other, just make a dish playful and full of joy.’ It goes without saying that it should taste impeccable too. ‘Yes of course, is the pope catholic?

FOOD INTOLERANCES ARE OUR PROBLEM, NOT YOURS
Going out to a restaurant should be fun for everybody. That is why we think that your food preference, intolerance or allergy is our problem, not yours. From gluten intolerance to cow milk, eggs, peanuts (or any other nuts), shellfish, soy, wheat or whatever, please let us know in advance. Thereupon… just sit back and relax.
No need to mention that to our resourceful chefs it’s a walk in the park to create the most amazing vegan dishes. Let alone vegetarian…
