Restaurant Simple gets a gorgeous makeover

Header Restaurant Simple Utrecht Explore-1

Restaurant Simple recently moved to Hotel Dom, in Podium onder de Dom’s old location. A gorgeous new interior with blue and grey tones gives the restaurant a stylish appearance. But Simple is still Simple. There’s no fuss at the new location, but delicious dishes with exceptional flavor combinations. So, still a favorite!

An invitation

We were invited to a special tasting for the opening of the new location. A beautifully set table stood along the windows on the garden side, where different people from the press could take a seat. After a welcome speech from the chef, the party could begin.

We’ve made an impressions video of this fantastic evening at Simple.

Surprising flavor combinations and delicious dishes

Simple serves up a new menu every month. The ingredients are seasonal and sometimes have an Utrecht flavor. During the press dinner, we enjoy a seven-course menu. The evening began with a delicious selection of various appetizers and a glass of wine. Then, a parade followed of the tastiest dishes I’ve had in a while.

The menu
