BB & Friends: A Conversation with Cliff Chan
Cliff Chan is an Amsterdam-based restaurateur, whose connection to Berg & Berg runs deep. A friend of our founders – Karin and Mathias – for more than 20 years, Cliff has become a well-known fixture on the Amsterdam food scene, running the two famous Nam Kee restaurants alongside his brother. We recently caught up with Cliff to discuss the perfect dining experience, leaving the corporate world behind, and how Nam Kee’s steamed oysters inspired a novel.

How do you like to dress for dinner?
Depends on the occasion, obviously, but mostly I’m quite casual. I tend to go for a sweater and chinos. It’s been a long time since I’ve worn a suit, but I do appreciate a classic dress shirt and some quality knitwear.
