diptych is an eight-seat omakase room in amsterdam.
omakase is short for omakase shimasu which means i leave it up to you in japanese.
trust is the main principle omakase-style restaurants are built on. there is no fixed menu, list of dishes and sometimes not even prices. guests give the chef the freedom to create a special experience. in turn, she creates a tailor-made menu right in front of the guests who are seated at the chef’s counter in an intimate atmosphere. the dishes are based on artistic vision and in response to the flow of the evening. diptych is a project by visual artist ola lanko who expanded her artistic practice into the field of gastronomy exploring unconventional tools to trigger imagination.
at diptych’s counter, you observe the transformation of familiar and less familiar ingredients into carefully created dishes and learn about the stories that inspired them. our style is inclusive in terms of technique, ingredients and presentation. inspired by japanese principles and cuisine, diptych combines elements of different culinary traditions and turns them into something new. local farmers work hard to produce the purest and most flavourful ingredients. our aim is to convey and elevate their craft and bring the highest quality seasonal products to our guests.
the diptych experience includes multiple plates with optional handcrafted drinks, we prepare both options with or without alcohol. please set aside at least three hours for your meal and advise making a reservation as seating is limited.
