Amsterdam's Dylan Hotel Gets New Restaurant

Heads up, foodies! Amsterdam's The Dylan hotel has opened Brasserie OCCO (yes, spelled with all capital letters), a lunch and dinner restaurant with menus that we hear will highlight local seasonal ingredients.

(Fun fact: The new brasserie gets its name from Lucas Pompejus Occo, who was a regent of “The Old and Poor People’s Office,” one of the most influential Roman Catholic charities in the late 1700s located where the 40-room hotel stands today.)

The menu ranges from traditional (a Black Angus hamburger with cheddar cheese and bacon) to the brasserie’s signature “Lunch Plate” (pictured right), a tasting of four small dishes served Monday to Friday from noon to 3pm. A sample tasting may include caesar salad with roasted prawns; pasta with pancetta, garlic and parmesan cheese; veal sirloin with asparagus, green peas, crispy potato and black olive sauce; and a terrine of chocolate and gingerbread with marinated mango for dessert. 

Brasserie OCCO is open daily from 11am to 11pm, serving lunch and dinner.

The Dylan is located at Keizersgracht 384 in Amsterdam. For more information, visit www.dylanamsterdam.com, and to book a reservation, email [email protected].
