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.
Chef Jacob Jan Boerma and the NH Hotel group have reopened the doors on The White Room, the flagship restaurant of Amsterdam’s historic Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky at Dam Square.
The restoration by London based Studio Proof is sensitive to the restaurant’s status as a listed monument. Original wall-panels, artworks and ceiling ornaments have been preserved and enhanced, complemented by neutral pallet of white, brass and sand.
It is a dining room as grand and ornate as they come, anchored in the now by Boerma’s thoroughly contemporary cuisine. Renowned for pairing familiar ingredients in unexpected ways, at his regional restaurant De Leest, Boerma is one of only two chefs in the Netherlands to currently hold three Michelin stars.
