C stands for Celsius as the whole menu is divided by the temperature it is cooked at. From rare and cold, to low temperature, steamed and grilled/tempura. The menu is very well priced. You can have a 4 course dinner for 45 euros. During lunch time, they do offer some of the same dishes as the dinner menu. The service was quick, and our waiter was very attentive and really took the time in explaining us the concept and the dishes. I went there for lunch last Wednesday with my husband. Since we already knew what we wanted to order, we chose to go à la carte. I love steak tartare so I had to order one, this one had artichoke and boquerone. The balance of flavors was delightful.
Then we had the open sandwich with smoked mackerel which was really good and quite big too.
After that, we had the pork belly with hoisin which was cooked at 75C, served with pak choy and peanuts. This was melt in your mouth goodness.
This was followed by the lobster with gnocchi, basil, Parmesan crisps and lobster bisque foam. The lobster was juicy and tender and the gnocchi were little pillows of deliciousness.
I had heard of their lunch burger before, so I had to try it as well. It was really good. Luckily we were sharing everything between the two of us because by that time I was getting full.
Even though in my case, there is always space for dessert. And it was a great way to end this lunch. The chocolate mousse was beautifully plated. It had coffee gel, lemon cream, macadamia crumble, basil sponge and basil ice cream. I love basil in desserts and this one was very well balanced and delicious.
The restaurant is located in the Eastern part of Amsterdam, where the first Baut used to be. Very easy to reach by Metro or tram.
