Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
After years of tasting dishes and reviewing practically every restaurant in Amsterdam, culinary journalists Famke & Floor van Praag have compiled their definitive list of favourites. Instead of highlighting conceptual flashes in the pan or convoluted Michelin-starred spots, Shortlist Amsterdam focuses on authentic restaurants that will never grow stale. Because the food is so utterly delicious, but also because the wine list is perfect, the service leaves nothing to chance and the vibe is outstanding.
The shortlist was compiled by culinary journalists Famke & Floor van Praag. Credits for the stunning imagery are for Petrovsky & Ramone.
