Manhattan usually manages to have at least one Netherlandish café, and the current holder of that honor is Vandaag ("Today"). Cocktails made with genever—the forerunner of gin—rule the mixed-drink list, and Dutch culinary commonplaces such as stroopwafel (caramel-crusted wafer), spekdik (bacon-dotted roll), and bitterballen (oxtail croquettes) abound. Still, the menu ventures deep into Scandinavian territory for inspiration, too, so you're not stuck in Amsterdam for your entire northern European vacation. 103 Second Avenue, 212-253-0470, (10003)
