MR PORTER, Amsterdam
MR PORTER is an unprecedented fine dining steak house in the crown of the historic Exchange building and the W Amsterdam. Duality defines MR PORTER character; simple and extravagant, masculine yet feminine, wicked though obedient. A traditional steakhouse transforms to become something sexy and continuously surprising. Founders and creators of this addition to the multitude of award-winning concepts of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP are internationally acclaimed hospitality entrepreneur Yossi Eliyahoo, the group’s CEO Stephanie Pearson and Executive Chef Hari Shetty.
"It is at the intersection of the familiar and the unknown, where real magic happens. MR PORTER captures that truth and translates it into a culinary experience unlike any other." – Yossi Eliyahoo, founder of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP
MR PORTER walks on the border between dinner and sinner with a unique concept that artfully blends qualities of the modern steakhouse with the buzz and experience of a chic lounge. A rib eye steak becomes exquisitely delicate and lightly roasted vegetables are elevated to a level of explosiveness. Unequalled taste combinations, unparalleled techniques and only the highest quality products enter and leave the transparent kitchen. This flirty, ambiguous and tasteful cuisine of MR PORTER translates into pure yet intricate dishes. Whilst baking a unique homemade focaccia as a starter and redefining gorgeous seafood- and vegetarian dishes, the spotlight of the MR PORTER menu is on the luscious selection of meats. Only the best cuts, the highest quality and the most playful preparations. MR PORTER crafted a menu that skillfully mixes evergreens such as a lady mignon, sirloin steak and –of course- the MR or MRS PORTER signature bone in filet, with ‘fresh meat’ like Chateaubriand with foie gras and the Tomahawk. Allow yourself to be seduced by the selection of sinful desserts that will always leave you wickedly wanting more.
The bar and lounge of MR PORTER is open all day for morning refreshments and late-night drinks. MR PORTER distinguishes itself from other restaurants by emphasising the social experience and taking a new, vibe-driven approach to fine dining. The resident DJ creates an infectious, high-energy atmosphere, while the sleek surroundings with a signature 360-degree island bar are designed to encourage guests to interact and mingle. Where the nights are vibrant, Sundays are for relaxing. Every week ends with either an elaborate Sunday Roast brunch or a Sunday BBQ. Ultimately, MR PORTER aims to redefine the modern eating experience with its blend of incredible flavours, world-class service and the perfect ambience.
MR PORTER – Thirst quenching cocktails:
From its vantage point on the top floor of the W Amsterdam, with its unrivalled 360-degree view on Dam Square and the city lights, the bar of MR PORTER aims to be a gleaming beacon for modern global mixology. Innovative and engaging use of ingredients, methods and service has been at the centre of the menu design, as well as the contradicting faces of the city of Amsterdam. The cocktail menu defines what has long been thought of as impossible from behind the bar; illustrated by drinks as the 'Star of Nicosia' – a Martini with exotic olive spheres which explode in your mouth- or the MR PORTER 'Bloody Mary #11Pamplona Bullshot'. The culinary approach to cocktails blur the traditional lines between bar and kitchen, creating a bar concept like no other.
MR PORTER – The Penthouse:
Through its unique design, central location and fully transparent nature, MR PORTER is a spectacle all by itself. The mansion, located on the 6th floor of W Amsterdam just steps away from the prestigious Dam Square, offers a peek into the kitchen with 15 seats directly situated at the kitchen counter. The catwalk-like entrance, semi-private seating as well as an unequalled rooftop terrace, highlight the shape-shifting DNA of MR PORTER. It can be light or dark, clandestine or social, classy or naughty – all or none of the above. MR PORTER is a socio-culinary roof top experience, boasting an iconic vista over the city of Amsterdam and cutting-edge dining. Designed by internationally renowned and award-winning architects Irene Kronenberg and Alon Baranowitz of BARANOWITZ + KRONENBERG Architecture, this exceptional setting takes inspiration from the buildings ‘connect and exchange’ heritage moving from an introverted personalised restaurant space, to an extroverted gastronomic event that reaches out and connects with the urban sprawl around it. This duality of personal versus public, of intimate versus open is one of the undercurrents, which defines the MR PORTER experience.
MR PORTER creates a sophisticated steakhouse experience redefining and challenging the traditional rules and injecting a fresh breath of vision to the Dutch dining scene. MR PORTER’s choice of cuisine, beverages, materials, textures and details pays tribute to this challenge. They are lighter in feel, leaner in detail, crisply innovative, classically smart, pushing the borders and socially enhancing; creating a contradicting spectacle of modesty.
