Bleu

Amsterdam

The culinary big brother to next-door Black & Blue Restaurant, Bleu is where gourmet French cuisine meets an unpretentious and comfortable atmosphere. The walls are a combination of blue subway tile and wood paneling, the booths are full-fledged couches (with cushions and everything), and black marble tables are adorned with succulents and cacti, all of which give this pick a homey feel you'd never usually get while eating steak tartar, whole lobster or chicken bon femme.
