Restaurant The White Room by Jacob Jan Boerma was awarded its first Michelin star during the annual Michelin Gala in Amsterdam. The signature restaurant of 3* Michelin chef Jacob Jan Boerma, which is led by Chef de Cuisine Arturo Dalhuisen, only opened its doors one and a half years ago in the NH Collection Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky.
Since then, the venue, food and team have received praise from critics and culinary aficionado's alike. After being named “best newcomer” by Lekker500 by securing the sixty-second place on this renowned list and receiving 16 points by Gault&Millau earlier this year, the work of Dalhuisen and his team is now officially recognized by Michelin, with a prominent place in the Michelin Guide 2018.
The 33-year old Arturo Dalhuisen, former right hand of Boerma, leads the kitchen of The White Room: “I'm so very grateful! Grateful because Jacob Jan Boerma trusted me to lead the kitchen of The White Room, and even more grateful that Michelin has rewarded the work of our team with this important gastronomical award. Of course, we have fantasized about this star, but it has never been our motivation. We want to create a unique experience for our guests. I'm convinced that only that way, one can achieve perfection.”
