Choux

Normally we wouldn’t recommend anything remotely near Station Centraal unless you have a particular taste for average churros and Argentinian steakhouses. But if you know you’ll be in the area and need something nice enough for yourself, a date, or your parents, Choux is your best bet. This place feels like a combination wine store and neighborhood bistro, and offers a couple of neatly composed tasting menus with dishes like pigeon leg confit on pickled roses, butter beans buried under edible flowers and apple leaf granita, and always appreciated in-between course bites like creamy tartelettes and spruce sorbets. Go for the three-course Theater Menu that’s €50 and makes for a decently early dinner before calling it a night or continuing on at the nearby Bimhuis for a jazz performance.
