june 7- july 29, 2018: experience the life and works of vincent van gogh in 5 or 7 dishes.

the eat’inspiration rising sun is a tribute to the much-discussed and eventful life and works of Vincent van Gogh, a true avant-garde artist in search of the art of the future.

an artist that consists of a very special mix of enthusiasm, unruliness, talents, honest concern for the working man and with a fascination for nature and japanese art.

an artist who is so much more than its artifacts: potatoes, sunflowers, a piece of ear and absinthe.

so join us in june and july 2018 and discover Vincent’s ideas. we also created a number of cocktails inspired by the many café visits by Vincent.

book, join us and work out for yourself if you are a Vincent or not.

march 22-june 2nd, 2018: in the mood for some flower power in 5 or 7 courses

prolonged until june 2nd, 2018.

in the mood for some flower power?

“the dutch” and flowers, tulips in particular, are often mentioned in the same breath. this special connection goes way back to the dutch golden age. during this era many new, exotic flowers and plants were introduced in the netherlands. at the peak of the golden age tulip bulbs even caused the very first speculative bubble, known as tulip mania.

today, the netherlands is often referred to as the “flower shop of the world”.  

flowers are connected to many areas of our everyday life: for instance art, craft, design, fashion, spirituality, emotion, symbolism, traditions, folklore, commerce, science, technology, botany, etc. 

for many centuries artists, artisans, botanists, gardeners, flower growers and trades men are inspired by all kinds of flowers and plants. this we have taken as the perspective for our eat’inspiration ‘flower power’.

so we would like to invite you to join us for a journey in which we explore this special relationship between “the dutch” and flowers, from flower growers to artists and designers, in 5 or 7 courses.
