After going through several incarnations, this splurge restaurant at the Dylan Hotel was renamed Vinkeles in 2008, finally settled into an assured groove, and earned a well-deserved Michelin star in 2009. The historic dining room, thankfully, has been left largely untouched; the ebony and ivory palette is still in place, as is the black beamed ceiling and the 18th-century brick ovens, where bread once was baked for a queue of Amsterdam's poor. Now it's a dressier crowd, and a smattering of visiting celebrities, who line up for chef Dennis Kuipers's luxe, but never overly formal, signature dishes. Roasted langoustines paired with veal and complemented by green apple jelly, sweetbreads sautéed in crushed almonds, and a pistachio sponge cake layered with stewed bananas all make a convincing case for a second star.—Raphael Kadushin

Open Mondays through Saturdays 7 to 10:30 pm.
