Dalhuisen cannot wait to get started in The White Room: 

I already had a great job at restaurant De Leest, but this new adventure is even greater. I am very eager to take up this opportunity together with Jacob Jan Boerma

Eerhardt worked, among others, as Maître and Chef de Rang for Restaurant Bord'Eau** in Hotel De L'Europe, Restaurant Vinkeles* in The Dylan and La Rive* in the Amstel hotel and is eager to commit this experience to The White Room:

With personal service I want to make The White Room a place that is ‘the place to be’ for everyone. A place where memories are created because of our knowledge, humor and hospitality.

Jacob Jan Boerma is thrilled to have Dalhuisen en Eerhardt join his team: 

With this team, we will be able to make The White Room a great culinary compliment to the current restaurants in Amsterdam.
