4’33 Grand Café

Located in the grand classical concert hall Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, a new culinary spot opened its doors. 4’33 Grand Café is a contemporary restaurant with a unique view over the Amsterdam IJ river. Its name refers to the work 4’33 “by the American avant-garde composer John Cage. Open throughout the day, it’s a perfect place for breakfast, a healthy lunch or pre-concert dinner and drinks. And not to forget, they serve some of the best pastries in town from the famous Dutch Dudok bakery. It’s an inspiring meet up place for local residents, musicians and concertgoers.

A night out at 4’33 Grand Café

Their dinner menu changes every two weeks and is based around the Southern European cuisine. The chef likes to experiment with contemporary twists on classic dishes. Think off Dutch shrimp croquettes, a burger with scampi and homemade arugula gnocchi. All dishes can be ordered and enjoyed separately or  you can choose to go for a 3-course menu. They’ll occasionally host live music at 4’33 Grand Café, so you’ll be in for a perfect night out even if you weren’t planning on going to a concert.


Good to know: On concert evenings between 5.30 and 8.00 pm. they carry a customized menu. Have a look on the website of the Muziekgebouw for an overview of their events.
