Simple food, done well. That is the not-sosecret recipe behind the success of Wyers Bar & Restaurant, a stylish, relaxed spot in central Amsterdam. Chef Sam ‘SammyD’ DeMarco comes from Brooklyn. After a career that has taken him around the world, he has settled in the Dutch capital, where he combines his roots with fresh products local to his new home. On the menu is American comfort food with a Dutch twist, like a smoked goose pastrami Reuben sandwich, roadside burger or a kimchi Texas- style hot dog. His food is fun and approachable, like his lollipop chicken wings. “They’re part of my history,” he says, “and I got a lot of attention from other chefs when I started making them at my restaurant First in NYC.”
