About De Nieuwe Winkel

One might almost want to call this venue "the little Noma of the Netherlands", though that would not honour its originality. De Nieuwe Winkel (the new shop) is indeed something completely new or at least different.

Welcoming and unpretentious, this almost entirely vegan restaurant has gained the award of both Michelin's green star and an applauding two regular stars. Unsurprisingly, food comes first at De Nieuwe Winkel, with memorable dishes such as foie gras made from walnuts and risotto from sunflower seeds, to name just two brilliant examples. Straightforward chef and owner Emile van der Staak comes from a restaurant family and focuses on sourcing as local as possible with vegetables on the altar.

The wine list perfectly syncs with the restaurant: Only organic/biodynamic wines with a strong emphasis on natural wine, though the great coaching of sommelier Tobias will guide even the most conventional drinker to wines they will like. They also have a fantastic selection of hard-to-find beers and great botanical cocktails. De Nieuwe Winkel is one of its kind!

  • This award is not only about a list, it is how a wine selection is coherent with the whole philosophy of a restaurant. De Nieuwe Winkel is showing us what the gastronomy of tomorrow will probably be, ancred but how so diverse, and dedicated to be a local actor while responsibly offering some of the most thoughtful and delicious wines, at a fair price. Congrats! said jury member Pascaline Lepeltier about the Grand Prix 2024.

  • Frankly, it's easy (if expensive) to write a great wine list when you have several thousand selections. I've always believed that the truest mark of smarts is the ability to write a well-rounded and complete short wine list. Winkel has provided a list for every gustatory and financial appetite. Sure, there's a focus upon cooler sites and Bordeaux is under-represented, but there are so many other wonderful options that it just doesn't matter, said jury member Doug Frost, Master Sommelier and Master of Wine about the gold for Best Short List 2024.
