Four courses at four different Okura restaurants in one night
Hotel Okura Amsterdam celebrates 40th anniversary with culinary fête
Amsterdam – In September, Hotel Okura Amsterdam will be celebrating its 40th anniversary. One of several festivities to be organized is a very special dinner at Okura’s four restaurants. During the first week of September, guests will be able to enjoy all four of Okura’s restaurants in one night. Every restaurant will be preparing one course each, for which Okura’s sommeliers have selected matching wines. During this dinner, guests will get to experience French haute cuisine as well as both contemporary and traditional Japanese dishes.
Japanese specialty restaurant Yamazato received its star in 2002 and was the first traditional Japanese restaurant to be awarded one Michelin star in Europe. The French Ciel Bleu Restaurant has been the proud holder of two Michelin stars since 2007. The Teppanyaki Restaurant Sazanka and the recently opened Serre Restaurant complete this culinary evening.
The special ‘Dine Around’ menu will be served September 1-7, 2011 (except on Sunday, September 4). Reservations are required. The price per person is € 150, excluding a selection of matching wines. This wine selection is available optionally at € 85 including an aperitif at the Lobby Bar beforehand. Because of the circulation, this culinary event will start at 6.30 P.M. sharp. Reservations can be made through our Restaurant Reservations department (+31 20 6787 450).
