French Celebrity Chef, TV star and cookbook author Cyril Lignac and the legendary Amstel Hotel Amsterdam, owned by Katara Hospitality, and operated by InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, have partnered to introduce the very first Lignac’s restaurant outside France, in the Netherlands.
The acclaimed Chef is set to open a restaurant at the prestigious hotel overlooking the banks of the Amstel river. Scheduled for early 2022, the concept will be based on Lignac’s successful venues in Paris.
The residents will discover a tasteful menu, blending Lignac’s French roots with international flavours which he gathered from his travels around the world. Designed with heritage in mind, the new restaurant will bring a modern twist to the city’s landmark, through the visionary spirit of Katara Hospitality.
The talented Chef will offer an evolved version of his successful seafood cuisine and original cocktails to the heart of Amsterdam.
“I am thrilled to open a new address in such an attractive city and at the Amstel. It is a fantastic and iconic hotel benefiting from one of the best locations in Amsterdam. The proximity with the river is an incredible opportunity to propose elegant and mesmerizing dining experiences. I am very much excited to contribute to the heritage and success of the place while proposing a contemporary offering in a historical building”, declared Cyril Lignac.
For over 150 years, the Amstel Amsterdam has kept its authentic charm which will be combined with an innovative culinary scene. This exciting venture will infuse a new breath into the legendary palace and will undoubtedly be the new fashionable location of the Venice of the North.
“We will write a new chapter in our history with the arrival of Chef Cyril Lignac. As part of this exciting new project, we plan to completely renovate our restaurant while preserving the soul of the ‘Grande Dame’. We are delighted to welcome Cyril Lignac and his expertise will make the Amstel Hotel shine even brighter in the future”, said Rudolf van Dijk.
