Auberge Jean en Marie
About Auberge Jean en Marie
A bit of Paris in Amsterdam. After a career in the city's culinary hotspots, Jan en Marije, friends Jean and Marie, opened their warm and 'gezellig' auberge in the heart of Amsterdam. At the end of the famous Albert Cuyp market, this cosy place was named the best French restaurant in the country. Not only in looks but more importantly, in feel, Jan en Marije bring their guests a true bistro experience.
One great thing they left out: the famous Parisian rudeness and snobbery. On the contrary, after a tremendous meal, you don't want to leave the place without hugging the couple. As one can expect, the menu consists of real French classics in a very well-executed way. Crème brulée, foie gras, onion soup, sweetbread and even frogs legs adorn the à la carte. One of the most hospitable places in town.
About the Auberge Jean en Marie Wine List
Completely in true bistro style, you can find most of the French wine regions on Jean en Marie's winelist. From oyster water like Muscadet and Picpoul to famous Sancerre (Vacheron), Vosne-Romanée (Grivot) and four different Beaujolais Crus.
There's a decent selection from other parts of Europe, but let's be plain and simple; when in Paris, drink like the Parisians.
