About NYB

A new restaurant with a traditional spirit, both hip and historical and with a nod to the Twenties and Thirties in New York City. NY Basement is taking Hotel New York ‘Back to the Base’.

Since October 30th, NY Basement is the ‘fine dining’ restaurant of Hotel New York. The restaurant is smaller, more exclusive and intimate than the well known restaurant on the ground floor of Hotel New York. When guests descend the ‘stairway to history’, they go back in time: it feels like if this 150 seat restaurant has always been there!

During 7 days a week, head chef Edward de Ridder spoiles his guests with true culinary creations. Charcoal grill dishes, tasty mid-size dishes from the menu or surprise menu’s for lunch and dinner. Good wines or delicious cocktails are the finishing touch of an exclusive evening of culinary tastings.

Because of the atmosphere, quality and service NY Basement is the new Rotterdam spot for a drink with colleagues, a lunch with a business partner or a dinner with family & friends.

Hotel New York

A historical gem on the waterside, at the end of Wilhelmina pier, offering a stunning view of the Maas river.

You can feel it as soon as you come in: a thrilling atmosphere, combined with an almost tangible sense of nostalgia. NY Basement is situated in the basement of Hotel New York, the former head offices of the Holland America Line. The building exudes a sense of history. From this place, almost a century ago, thousands of hopeful families embarked for emigration to America.

In this historical setting we welcome guests for an overnight stay, dinner, drinks, parties or business meetings. In our café-restaurant food is available in all price ranges all day. We offer 72 unique hotel rooms to stay in, including the rooms in the green turrets and the former Board rooms. We also have various rooms for weddings, meetings and celebrations.
