In the shadow of the golden lyre that tops the Concertgebouw (Concert Building), this institution has been serving musicians and concertgoers alike for almost a century. You can come here at almost any hour for anything from a drink to a full meal. The appropriately classical, dimly lighted Old Dutch interior—comfortable as an old shoe—is paneled with dark wood and spread with Oriental rugs. The menu leans toward tradition with a classic salade niçoise, rack of lamb,
and sole à la meunière, with homemade steak tartare being the house specialty.
