Ladies and gents, it’s time to suit up, put on your prettiest dress, polish your shoes, grab your highest heels and head over to Ferilli’s at the College Hotel. This new fine-dining hotspot will make you feel as if you left Amsterdam and ran away to upper-class Manhattan, chique bartenders included. A perfect, romantic night is waiting to happen. So, have something to celebrate? Or are you in need of a unique place to spend the evening? This Italian hideaway in the posh College Hotel is your perfect getaway for every special occasion (the fact that it’s Friday, weekend or whatever is also a special occasion if you ask me).
Just think of the most delicious Limoncello cocktails (Gin/Tonics are so last year), combined with Prosecco for that extra sparkle. And the perfect Italian appetizers, simple, pure flavors with that certain je ne sais quoi (yeah, I know, that’s not Italian) which will make you want to eat more and more. Oysters with lemon, tomato jelly with homemade pesto, polenta, tempura ansjovis, Italian sausage, oh such a pleasure. It’s perfect, and that’s no surprise with Michelinchef Donatella Zampoli at the reins of the kitchen. There is no doubt that you will find quality on your plate.
But that food won’t taste as good if you are not dining in a nice atmosphere. Well, they got that part covered. From the fully stocked bar (hello great wine and Peroni beers) to the lighting, to the crisp white tables to the art, the fireplace and the occasional mirrored wall. Even the powder rooms are high class. The whole of Ferilli’s just oozes style, classy cozyness and luxury. You go here to get pampered. And if the weather allows it, a big secluded terrace will welcome you for a sip, a laugh and a ray of sunshine.
I have to say, Ferilli’s really pulled it off at the College Hotel. Everything is designed for you to make memories. I can’t wait to find an excuse.. euh, occasion to go there to enjoy a special night, can you?
