Summary: Dim lights, modern music, unique seating.

Graphite by Peter Gast offers a rare dining experience in a speakeasy setting, where guests are drawn in by word-of-mouth to enjoy its culinary delights. Tucked away behind a blackened facade on Paardenstraat, this restaurant provides an ambiance of dimmed lighting and contemporary music at a volume that's lively yet unobtrusive. The seating features cozy, half-moon shaped benches, and the menu showcases small portions with expansive flavor profiles. Their signature dish is a vegetable garden centered with ravioli filled with carrot cream, complemented by various types of beets, edible flowers, herbs, and a finishing touch of herbal jus. Another memorable dish is the hamachi paired with ponzu gel, citrus cream, and a cherry blossom kombucha, culminating with a few drops of dill oil. Upon reservation, guests receive a QR code, which leads them to this hidden gem where a cocktail bar awaits before the main dining experience. Graphite by Peter Gast is indeed an intriguing venture, blending traditional methods with creative concepts in an intimate and discreet setting.
