More Amsterdam Notes, Intriguing Find...Per Se of A'dam?

Restaurant La Rive (Michelin starred) at the Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam (on the Amstel River, off of Sarphatistraat) has 1 table in the kitchen. This table can be booked for a ~15 course chef's tasting menu + wine tasting menu at about 200 euros per person. I haven't eaten there personally, but know a few American, Barcelonesan, and French expats who have and all described it as an incredible experience. I have a reservation for next month and am excited to see if it lives up my recent meal at Per Se.

Note: The restaurant at The Mansion (Hobbemastraat, Amsterdam across from Tempo Deloe) has reasonably good Asian fusion...excellent for The Netherlands. Best dishes were the veal salad and scallops with foie gras in black bean sauce. It's owned by the wealthiest Dutch media family and they hire waitresses through Elite Modeling Agency so that should give you an idea of what atmosphere is like.
