At NH Hotels we love Christmas and so do our renowned chefs. They’ve spent the last weeks thinking about the best creations to make us feel both, scrumptious tradition and modern sophistication in every course and dessert. Putting in their hands the most fresh and exclusive ingredients, only edible art can happen as a result.
If you’ve been to Amsterdam, there’s no need to talk about NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky because its impressive belle époque architecture surely caught your attention when you got at the very heart of the city.
If you haven’t, picture the Titanic classy interiors and exclusive environment at Damplatz, just opposite the Royal Palace. To make a fair enough picture, we shouldn’t forget extremely friendly Dutch character.
Chefs from NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky have conceived several delicious proposals to each restaurant and cafe of the hotel.
Grand Café Mathilde has been serving imported coffee from Java to le tout Amsterdam for more than 140 years, becoming almost as traditional as Sinterklaas for many Dutch generations.
Their Christmas afternoon tea proposal (39,50€ per person) it’s perfect to catch up with your grandma as you feel like distinguished ladies from a Jane Austen novel or to have a break from Christmas shopping.
Delicious blends of teas and high roast coffees, refreshing sparkling wines and a never-ending selection of edible delicacies amused with live piano music. Don’t hesitate it too long and grab that second piece of raspberry cheesecake, it’s only available on 25th and 26th December.
The magic atmosphere of Winter Garden restaurant is where Christmas Brunch (65€ per person) will be served from 12:00 to 15:00 hours; a luxurious buffet with a large variety of fresh meat and fish specialties and home-made desserts. As every NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Christmas menu proposal, it comes with a selection of wines, Dutch drinks assortment, coffee and tea.
Restaurant Reflet is where Krasnapolsky fabulous galas happen. A wise blending of French cuisine and the finest Dutch recipes that has placed Reflet among the best restaurants in Amsterdam.
From Christmas Eve to New Year’s –including traditional Dutch day of Sylvester menu- they’ll be serving delicatessens such as Sockeye salmon or Rouleau of duck with sides like Acquitine caviar, winter truffles or tea of lobster.
Actually, Christmas is very important at NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky and there are plenty of meals, dinners and events going on during the holidays, as well as discounts for groups and business clients. Feel free to contact them for further info and, bon appétit!
For those spending New Years’ Eve in Brussels, NH du Grand Sablon has chosen lobster, strawberries and champagne to say goodbye to 2012. Enjoy this classic exclusivity in a pair of Manolo’s, but don’t make them too high, you’re going to be dancing and having fun until 1st of January sunrise.
Does it feel weird not to have Christmas Eve dinner at home yet you don’t want to spend long hours cooking? Maybe it’s simply not cool to have some members of the family working hard and missing some of the best Christmas moments.
This is what the executive Chef of NH Berlin Friedrichstrasse and his team must have thought, because they have created a delicious and sophisticated, yet traditional and homely, Christmas menu to go.
Until 27th December, a slow-roasted goose, cooked with respect for the traditional timing to keep it moisturized and tender enough to melt in your mouth will be at your reach. Red cabbage and potato dumpling (kartoffelkloesse) are the customary sides among many others to fit and refine your NH Berlin Friedrichstrasse Christmas menu to your liking.
Christmas Menus to go cost 160€ and are thought for 6 people willing to have a royal Christmas banquet worth remembering.
Maybe there’s not a whole Christmas menu at the NH hotel you’re staying these holidays, but surely they’ll have something special in mind to make you feel at home, during Christmas too.
Mmmmm, we almost forgot! NH Hesperia in Madrid has the most unbelievable Christmas menu ever , where plates won’t be cooked by chefs but spelled by fairies and nymphs in a fruit tree garden! Too good to believe? Next week, we’ll find out every little detail about this fabulous Christmas in a up-coming interview with NH Hesperia Madrid manager.
