The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam invites the globally praised Mitsuharu ‘Micha’ Tsumura and team from Nikkei-restaurant Maido in Lima.


1*Michelin RIJKS in Amsterdam continues its grand series of collaboration dinners by inviting the globally praised Mitsuharu “Micha” Tsumura and team from Nikkei-restaurant Maido in Lima; celebrated at “Latin America’s Best Restaurant 2017” and The World’s No. 8 by The World’s 50 Best Restaurant List.

The stage is set for April Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th in Venice of the North.


For Micha, Maido is an expression of the ongoing story of Peru, nourishing guests with memory and imagination. From start to finish, diners are treated as if they’re at home and taken on a gastronomic journey through Peru’s produce.

In Amsterdam the Nikkei Inspirator cooks in the hectic but supremely efficient and fun, grand open kitchen of 1*Michelin RIJKS at the Rijksmuseum, where he alongside blonde patron Joris Bijdendijk and his grand brigade cooks a collaboration menu of tasty plates for lunch and dinner over two days.

Previous guest chefs at RIJKS before Latin America’s No. 1 are Virgilio Martinez – also of Lima, André Chiang of Singapore, Kamilla Seidler, then of Gustu in La Paz, Fergus Henderson of London and Tim Raue of Berlin.

The Rijksmuseum tells the story about the Netherlands. Influences from countries far and near can also be seen. At RIJKS the swanky restaurant with a sizzling open kitchen follows this pattern: quality, authenticity and uniqueness translated to: the kitchen, the chefs, the interior and the location.

Basically RIJKS is the Rijksmuseum served up on a plate. Monday April 9th and Tuesday 10th Mitsuharu Tsumaru cooks alongside the super team of RIJKS for lunch and dinner. To learn more about RIJKS and this event, please follow this link to the restaurant’s website.
