Enjoy modern, casual cuisine created by a three-star chef from the gastronomic land of the Netherlands, along with stunning night views from the 46th floor

Jacob Jan Boerma, a three-star chef and one of the most respected chefs in the Netherlands, which has one of the highest gastronomic densities in the world, caused a sensation by opening SMAAK, his first ever restaurant in Asia, on the 46th floor of a building caressed by fresh breezes from the harbor and connected to Bashamichi Station on the Minatomirai Line in Yokohama, a 30-minute train ride from Shibuya, Tokyo.

Born in 1972 in the Netherlands, Director Chef Jacob started his culinary career at a young age. After training at world-renowned restaurants at home and abroad, he opened De Leest (2002-2019) in his home country. This restaurant was awarded its first star only six months after opening and given three stars a decade later. He continues to broaden his range of work, opening restaurants in the Netherlands, Belgium, and other European countries. The newly launched SMAAK is his first opening in Asia. He has entrusted this restaurant to Chef Rob Nollé, who knows his culinary philosophy better than anyone.

SMAAK offers international cuisine with Dutch roots. Director Chef Jacob’s iconic dishes are modern, casual, and sophisticated with multilayer combinations of sour and savory flavors. The beautiful and colorful dishes delight the eyes as well as the taste buds. Most of the ingredients are sourced within Japan. The fish and shellfish come from local waters around Kanagawa.
The wine list curated to match the dishes features European wineries, especially those in Scandinavian countries. The pairing menu offers both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Either option invites guests to delve more deeply into the culinary world of Director Chef Jacob.

The bright, modern interior boasts floor-to-ceiling windows on one side that offer stunning views of Yokohama’s bay area. The daytime harbor views and the twinkling city lights at night are equally spectacular. With seating for up to 58 guests, including private dining rooms, the restaurant is an ideal place for dates, anniversaries, intimate meals, and celebrations.

The restaurant’s name, SMAAK, means “taste” in Dutch. Why don’t you taste the modern, casual dishes that contain a complex combination of sour and savory flavors while enjoying the splendid views of Minatomirai in Yokohama?
