Hungry by the RAI? Head to The Roast Room for a meaty menu in a sleek and modern setting.
For a more casual meal, dine downstairs at The Roast Bar. The brasserie style restaurant has an open floor plan with views into the kitchen. On a nice day you can even dine outdoors on the spacious square.
We tried the lamb tagine and the burger, both were delicious. The menu is comprised of mostly meat dishes like sausage, burgers and steaks. We wouldn’t say there are many vegetarian options but surely the chefs can prepare something for someone who avoids meat in your group. Pair your meal with wine or a cocktail or perhaps a special beer.
The restaurant is split in two, and Rotisserie is the fine dining option upstairs. Order the three to five course chef’s menu or go a la carte. Upstairs the menu is also meaty but a bit more refined, with white tablecloths and dishes like duck liver and escargot.
The restaurant is located in a structure called the RAI-Amtrium, a new sustainable meeting and conference space next to the Amsterdam RAI. On the building’s south side is a vertical greenhouse where the vegetables and herbs for The Roast Room are grown. Talk about a local meal!
The Roast Room is an excellent location for a business lunch or dinner, a meal with colleagues after a conference at the RAI or just a night out with friends.
If it’s fish you are craving, make your way across the street to sister restaurant Visaandeschelde.
