Based in art’otel amsterdam, opposite the iconic Amsterdam Central Station, 5&33 Kitchen applies a shared-dining concept with a menu of simple, fresh and honest food, inspired by the flavours of the wider Mediterranean. Regional flavours and fresh ingredients characterise Mediterranean food,” Frisina explains. “We adapt our menu to the season, like the truffle or mussel season, and a great deal of our products are handmade. We make our own bread, pasta and ice cream.” Sicilian cuisine prevails at 5&33. “Sicily has many culinary influences. Because of the central location between Europe and Africa it is a cuisine with a curious mind.”
