Guts & Glory
Our favourite restaurant in Amsterdam
Despite the name, this place is more glory than guts. Sister restaurant of Cafe Daalder, Guts & Glory's menu is centred around a particular animal. Every three months the animal changes. When we visited they were onto their third 'chapter' - beef. Before that, they had fish and chicken. The theme here is to use all of the animal, and no part is spared (sorry vegetarians). But it's not at all about serving very heavy offal dishes; it's very refined, well thought out and delicious cooking. Our first course was actually a cod fish dish, with a sauce made from beef broth. We probably shouldn't mention this as by the time you visit the menu would have moved on to the next chapter, but they served bread with what has to be the best butter ever! Beef butter. Made from beef scraps cooked slowly in brown butter. It was craaaaaazy good! Guts & Glory is now on our list must return restaurants in Amsterdam, we look forward to the next chapter.
Each quarter year the menu focuses on one animal, and they make the most of it taking a toe to tail approach. Inventive, creative so come with an open mind and eat through the set menu.
