HAL debuts ‘Taste of De Librije’

Holland America Line (HAL) has expanded its culinary offerings with the debut of a new alternative dining option exclusively aboard the Rotterdam called “Taste of De Librije,”featuring the cuisine of Culinary Council member and Michelin Three Star Chef Jonnie Boer. Named after Boer’s restaurant in the Netherlands, the menu showcases a selection of starters, soups, entrees and desserts from his land-based eatery. Once per cruise the Pinnacle Grill will be transformed with service staff wearing the uniform livery from De Librije, the restaurant’s table set-up will be replicated and the wine list will highlight a selection of labels from the Lady De Librije collection. Reservations can be made for “Taste of De Librije”for a US$69 surcharge p.p., including wine parings. When guests return to their stateroom following the dining experience, they will also find a Jonnie Boer surprise gift. (
