Tulips, bicycles, windmills, lawlessness: You’ll find none of these Dutch hallmarks at The Dutch in New York. Andrew Carmellini has launched his newest venture after earning praise and an around-the-clock stream of diners for his Tribeca Italian joint, Locanda Verde. Inspired by the likes of corner taverns, country inns, seaside shacks, and cultural influences of New York City, The Dutch brings together a well-executed and unique mix of American cuisine for the dinner and late-night menus. The first of which will feature giant oyster plates, dry-aged steaks, and classic fried chicken accented with farm-fresh vegetables. For after-hours cravings tuck into one of the Dutch’s rich leather banquettes for a mouth-watering cheddar burger, a quirky breakfast dish, or a guilt-worthy sticky apple cake with toasted pecans and apple sherbet. The front of the eatery is furnished in a casual yet sophisticated decor with large globe lighting illuminating overhead, and for a more refined experience request the back room outfitted in vibrant red walls, the dark leather booths, and an intimate oyster bar. A Soho spot located on Sullivan Street, The Dutch strikes a delicate balance between fine dining and cozy neighborhood bistro. Local produce and lots of honesty go into every dish—chef Andrew Carmellini would have it no other way.
I love sitting at the raw bar and having champagne and Oysters, everything on their menu is absolutely delicious. They have amazing seafood and meat options.
