New York Basement, Bar – Restaurant. Enjoy exciting cocktails and culinary creations

Enjoy exciting cocktails and culinary creations in the atmosphere of pre-war Manhattan.

With its stylish ornamentation and colourful patterns, and an interior design that is both hip and historical, NY Basement is a trendy restaurant and cocktail bar in the basement of our nostalgic and distinctive building at the end of Wilhelmina pier.

The contrast between grandeur and basic has an exciting effect. Smaller, more intimate and more exclusive than the well known restaurant on the ground floor of Hotel New York, NY Basement has its own vibe and character, plus all of the hospitality that Hotel New York is famous for. Enjoy classic and exotic cocktails at the bar.

Restaurant Zeezout. Delicious fishes

Not just what is on the Diner plate, also whats going on around the table set is important. Focus on consistent quality and attention to the guests. Each dish on the map promises something special. Dived scallops fresher than fresh. Or in salt crust cooked sea bream. So delicious and so easy, that it is not difficult to make at home after. Be surprised with a Bouillabaisse or a beautiful piece of fish cooked on the bone.
