The Amsterdam

The Amsterdam is Rhinebeck, NY's newest restaurant, serving elevated farm-to-table New American comfort food in a restored Colonial home.

The Amsterdam

In Spring 2017 The Amsterdam opened in the heart of Rhinebeck, serving elevated farm-to-table fare in a warm and welcoming environment, alongside craft cocktails, an international and thoughtfully curated wine list, a New York-centric craft beer list and more. The kitchen is led by Chef Sara Lukasiewicz, a James Beard Award Rising Star Chef Nominee who first turned heads throughout the region as Executive Chef of the Red Devon in Bangall, NY—and Culinary Institute of America graduate. Lukasiewicz’ menu of New American classics re-imagined draw on her deep relationships with local vendors and a keen understanding of the hyper-locality of the rich agricultural region. Her dishes are classics with a twist, always imbued with a sense of place and purpose.

The locavore menu is accentuated by a wine list curated by General Manager and Wine Director James Jusseaume. The wine cellar is classically done, encompassing bottles from the New and Old World producers, many which are exclusively available in the region at The Amsterdam. Prohibition-era gin and whiskey cocktails are highlights on the cocktail list, crafted at the highest level of fresh ingredients and local spirits.

The Vibe at The Amsterdam

The restaurant’s main level features an oversized bar and a stunning dining room with high ceilings and open kitchen that welcomes onlookers. Beyond the dining room, a backyard reveals a large dining patio and pergola, vintage picnic tables for more casual dining, a bocce court and a fire pit circled with cozy chairs. The second level is home to a lounge area and large private dining room that is completely customizable for private events from 12-40+ guests.

“What a great addition to the Rhinebeck food scene. We’ve been to the Amsterdam several times and have consistently enjoyed the food. Chef Sara is an outstanding, talented chef. The space is beautiful and during the winter very warm and inviting, even if you are just having a drink and appetizers at the bar. “
