A stairway resembling a chopping block leads to the rotisserie on the first floor. At the top of the stairs you can see the magnificent open kitchen with its Australian beech ovens, broiler, charcoal grill and rotisserie, with a beautiful handmade tile wall as a backdrop. The white ceramic bar at the front of the establishment offers a unique view of Amsterdam. You can also enjoy sitting on the sunny outside terrace of the rotisserie. The centerpiece of the space is a light sculpture, Ginger Blimp, which connects the two floors. Studio Molen realized this monumental chandelier, like the other bronze works, exclusively for the restaurant.
