Greetje Restaurant Review

: With gorgeous views of Montelbaanse Tower, this cozy restaurant is much warmer than one might expect from the impressive façade---wood-plank floors, heavy drapes and rather fussy wallpaper make it feel more like someone’s living room. Wide-set tables are simply appointed, and a cabinet of cheery Delft blue vases sets the culinary expectations. Chef Tjeerd Blom placates the Dutch obsession with mussels in a creamy soup of the bivalves touched by chervil and tomato. Veal pie from the southern city of Maastricht comes with a sultry veal gravy with lemon, toast and marinated prunes, while Brabantine “sour” headcheese is served simply with French mustard. If you can’t decide on an appetizer, there’s a prix-fixe option (for two or more diners) in which you get a dab of all the starters and “in betweens.” For entrées, it’s hard to beat the heartiness of stewed veal with potatoes and beets, napped with a mustard gravy; an equally sturdy, homey finisher brings bread pudding with vanilla ice cream.
