Crazy new restaurant concept
Not yet listed in the Iens or Special Bite restaurant guides, the mayor of Amsterdam Job Cohen opened and waited on tables yesterday at a new Amsterdam restaurant called Freud. Why the brouhaha? The restaurant, founded by psychologist Renske Kastelein and cooking instructor Gerda Hahn, is run by people with psychiatric problems. Their slogan translates to “Insanely delicious food”. “The staff here can’t get a job anywhere, but they function just fine, which is what they can prove here”, Hahn explains.
