The Michelin chef will also be responsible for the creation of menus for several gastronomic outlets in the hotel, including the new Grand Café Krasnapolsky, which will open at the beginning of 2015.

Jacob Jan Boerma is delighted to be opening a new restaurant in the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky: “It is a fantastic opportunity to start with NH Hotel Group in Amsterdam, especially in one of the most famous hotels in the city. I look forward to combining the history of the Krasnapolsky and my own style of cooking to present a new, exciting and contemporary culinary temple.” Boerma will not close down restaurant De Leest in Vaassen though: “In Vaassen we put in the fundamentals and it has taken us to where we are today.

Boerma’s signature will also be found in the new Grand Café Krasnapolsky, which opens at the beginning of July 2015 and will seat 120 guests for both lunch and dinner, with an unequalled view on the Dam. Furthermore, Boerma will create a varied and exclusive selection of menus for congresses, meetings and events that take place in the hotel.

With the arrival of Jacob Jan Boerma, NH Hotel Group welcomes its fourth Michelin star Chef to the chain and the second Michelin star Chef in the Netherlands. 
The Company’s other world-renowned chefs are Paco Roncero (2* Michelin Chef at La Terraza del Casino and advisor in DOMO) and Óscar Velasco (2* Michelin Chef at Santceloni) both in Madrid.  Chris Naylor (1*Michelin), Executive Chef of Restaurant Vermeer, at NH Barbizon Palace, led the way in the Dutch capital. Also, NH Collection Eurobuilding in Madrid holds the only 3* Michelin restaurant in the city, DiverXO, led by Chef David Muñoz.
