If you’ve ever had a chance to go on a cruise, you know that the dining options onboard are not taken lightly. In fact, the food is considered an essential part of the cruise experience. Heading out to sea to escape New York’s frigid temperatures may sound tempting, but there’s no need to venture outside the city to experience the culinary flavors of the high seas. New Yorkers are invited to enjoy Celebrity Cruises’ “A Taste of Modern Luxury,” a pop-up restaurant in the heart of Midtown from January 29th through February 1st.
With The Kitchen NYC serving as the event space, Celebrity’s pop-up restaurant invites diners to experience a number of Celebrity’s onboard menus as well as special additions inspired by Manhattan’s own culinary flavors all being served for lunch ($40) and dinner ($75).
With John Suley, James Beard-featured chef and Celebrity Cruises' Director of Culinary Operations at the helm, diners will enjoy a three-course meal with several options for each course, including a five-spice crusted Cervena venison loin with celery root fondant, wilted spinach, red cabbage marmalade and lingonberry sauce from the classic specialty restaurant Murano, as well as the “Strawberry Fields” dessert from the “uniquely unordinary” specialty restaurant Qsine. The menu will be complemented by wine pairings and local brews, as well as tasty libations created by Master Mixologist Junior Merino (known as The Liquid Chef) whose concept, The Molecular Bar, is featured on Celebrity’s Solstice Class ships.
Recognized by the iconic X, Celebrity Cruises is an industry leader in delivering award-winning world-class cuisine and impeccable service. With more than 5,000 food and beverage professionals from around the world, Celebrity’s culinary team strives to be an innovative force in creating globally influenced classic and contemporary meals for its unique restaurants across its fleet of modern cruise ships.
In April 2012, Celebrity became the first cruise line to prepare a meal at New York’s prestigious James Beard House. Celebrity followed up the event with the first pop-up restaurant by a cruise line in San Francisco leading up to its New York debut.
Advanced ticket purchases and time reservations are necessary as seating is limited. Proceeds from ticket sales will support the Celebrity Cruises Scholarship at The Culinary Institute of America, of which Chef Suley is a 1996 graduate. Additionally, attendees will be entered for a chance to win a Caribbean cruise for two on a luxurious Celebrity Cruises ship.
