House in Amsterdam (Herengracht 314, Amsterdam)
From an artistic and historical viewpoint, the facade (1725) on this monumental building is unique because of its gable, a kind of cross between a neck and cornice gable.To the left and right of this neck are sandstone scrolls in the form of dolphins. The man who commissioned the second house built at this site was Nicolaas Romswinkel, who was a "vroedsman" and part of the city council. The house remained in his family for more than a century. Since 1986, a large part of the house was accommodated a private restaurant, a cooking school and the catering business "La cuisine Francaise". Dining in the 19th-century banquet room overlooking a beautiful garden is simply delightful.
