(Junior) Sous Chef

Where your journey will take place

In April 2016, Jacob Jan Boerma opened his restaurant The White Room in Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Amsterdam, which was honoured with its first Michelin star in 2017! The fine dining restaurant will seat 60 guests for both lunch and dinner. The name The White Room is derived from the historical name of the room ‘De Witte Zaal’, the name that was given to the restaurant when it first opened in 1885. The room is listed as a monument and is considered to be the oldest restaurant of Amsterdam in original condition. History and future are connected with one another, due to the modern styling of this unique restaurant.
