Fodor's Expert Review Brasserie van Baerle
If it's Sunday and you want to brunch on the holiest of trinities—blini, caviar, and Champagne—look no further than this elegant brasserie. During the week, the sleek, modern furnishings and professional yet personal service attract a lunchtime business crowd, who enjoy the set menu (three appetizers and a glass of wine), as well as late-night diners, who come here after attending an event at the nearby Concertgebouw. The French-influenced menu includes oysters, Caesar salad, steak tartare, and duck breast. There's outdoor dining when the weather cooperates.
