SMAKENRAD | Fine Dining in a Ferris Wheel in Amsterdam

Enjoying a first class meal with a panoramic view of the whole of Amsterdam? From the 13th of October, it’s possible! In collaboration with Smakenrad, Joris Bijdendijk, executive chef of RIJKS® Restaurant, will be serving his favourite dishes in the largest Ferris wheel of the Netherlands.

The 27 heated gondolas will be converted into Corona-proof private restaurants, which will reach a height of 50 meters in the wheel. The “Smakenrad” will be located infront of the RAI convention centre in Amsterdam.

Initiator Bram Verleg of Smakenrad (translated to tasty ferris wheel): A place where guests can enjoy food and drinks from Amsterdam’s most famous chef, in the most beautiful place in the city. And that is completely covid-proof, because the wheel is ideal for a safe reception of guests.

While the Smakenrad provides food and drinks in the wheel during the day, the dinner comes from Joris Bijdendijk. His menu changes every three weeks and will consist of various dishes from Wils and RIJKS®, two of his restaurants at the Olympic Stadium and the Rijksmuseum respectively. In addition, we work together on a few exclusive culinary evenings that will be announced later.
