Regional and seasonal cuisine!
At Roots, they believe that dining is an experience that should appeal to all your senses. Not only the palate, but also your sight, your hearing and of course your sense of smell. They take pride in the high quality ingredients that The Netherlands has to offer and source almost all our produce from local and regional producers. These ingredients are at their best when enjoyed in the season, and therefore they are committed to a high quality seasonal menu.
This philosophy is best explained by introducing the signature dish of chef, Stephan Nijst. Dry-aged rib-eye, wrapped in banana leaves, and hay and covered in clay to be baked in the oven. Roots serves you this dish at the table, and when their service team breaks the clay the aromas will take you back to the fields on which the Dutch cow was once grazing. The sommelier can recommend a glass of wine to complement the taste of the rib-eye or any other dish, but you can choose your own favorite wine from the extensive wine list with wines from the classic wine countries.
And since Roots changes the menu every quarter, they also adjust our restaurant ambiance to the season. Each season is symbolized by a different color accent, and they play different tunes to set the scene. This way, you can truly experience the season with all your senses.
