Over the past few years many newcomers have arrived in the Netherlands, including from Syria. People with talents, dreams and ambitions. At restaurant Syr they can use these talents and further develop their skills, making them feel at home in Utrecht and take part in Dutch society. Refugees with a residence permit work together with Dutch hospitality colleagues at the restaurant. While visitors are enjoying delicious Syrian dishes with a European twist, a bond is formed between different cultures.

With over 500 investors, the crowdfunding of Syr has been successful! The restaurant opened its doors on the 25th of June 2016 at the Lange Nieuwstraat 71, in Utrecht.
