AMSTERDAM - Restaurant Fifteen Amsterdam is responding in a jovial fashion to the debate on dual nationality. It is inviting everyone with two passports to a free Umbrian dinner on Monday.

The idea comes from co-owner of Fifteen Sarriel Taus, who is himself of Surinamese background. The restaurant is characterised by a mix of cultures. The staff represents a variety of ethnic backgrounds, including Mauritian, Moroccan, Turkish, Antillean and Somali.

"There are a lot of heated discussions about Geert Wilders' motions in Fifteen as well. So Fifteen decided to do something."

"The one thing everyone at Fifteen has in common, in addition to Dutch nationality, is a passion for food and great products. One passport or two, it doesn't matter. Food brings us together," Taus says.

Fifteen is also trying to get Geert Wilders to the restaurant on the day of the campaign, but there has been no word yet on whether he will accept the invitation.
