Rough & refined.
Honestly, we had no idea where to find the hotspots of Amsterdam North. I had to use my social skills to get some intel. Apparently, one of the places we had to try, was right around the corner where we were checking our smartphones. Hotel de Goudfazant. Contrary to what the name suggests, it is not a hotel. Nor a car workshop, although that's exactly what it looks like and probably was, at some point in the past. It's a superbe restaurant, in an amazing-looking hangar. Rough on the outside, but refined stuff on the plates, we were promised. We lunged into the open garage door and made a reservation for the evening.
Culturally there's a lot going on in Amsterdam North. And if you're into ... stuff (calling it junk would be pretty inappropriate) ... Don't go anywhere else!
