Concierge.com's insider take:
The exclamation point isn't a sign of phony PR enthusiasmthe Dutch get very excited about their pancakes. They're the Madeleine of the lowlands, and this intimate restaurant in the Nine Streets district does the local soul food proud. If you're adventurous, order one of the kitchen's sideshow acts: pancake "pies" layered high in Seussian stacks; fusion experiments, such as the Sri Lankan pancake smeared with green bean curry; or an anything-goes rendition that combines chicory, ham, and raspberries. Locals, however, are more likely to settle for the classic Dutch pancakeflat as a crêpe, unadorned, and lapping over the sides of its plate. If you need a topping, sliced apples and powdered sugar are best. Even better: a heaping glass of buttermilk, which is like slurping the batter.
Open daily 10 am to 7 pm.
