Where we've featured it
The Amsterdam is the newest, fanciest restaurant in Rhinebeck. It’s in an old townhouse, there’s a giant still life painting hanging in the dining room, and some of the staff are in suspenders. Overall, it feels like a rich Dutch person’s library. But you can avoid that initial stuffiness in two ways: hang out at the bar, or head to the giant backyard filled with Adirondack chairs, firepits, and blankets for the taking. Both are great places to have a quality cocktail and some very good, seasonal American (non-Dutch) food.
