Michelin-starred chef-restaurateur Daniel Boulud – whose many restaurants include Palm Beach’s Café Boulud – is about to open his first restaurant at sea.
Le Voyage will launch on Celebrity Cruises’ newest ship, Beyond, on its maiden voyage on April 27 from England.
Boulud, a longtime “global culinary ambassador” for Celebrity, told the Daily News on Wednesday that he was “delighted” to have collaborated with Celebrity to create the upscale Le Voyage, which will feature a menu with global influences.
“Le Voyage will bring a new experience to its guests with a convivial approach to gastronomy and a menu inspired by the fragrant cuisine of many continents and countries,” said Boulud.
Le Voyage features a soft-toned interior design by Paris-based Jouin Manku Studio, which is responsible for, among other things, the restaurant Le Jules Verne at the Eiffel Tower.
Passengers on Beyond, now the largest ship in Celebrity’s fleet, can expect to find dishes such as tamarind and peanut crusted shrimp with papaya, pepper, sprout salad soy and Thai green curry, and slow-cooked sea bass with za ‘atar, candied fennel, broccoli rabe and orange vinaigrette, he says.
Martinique pineapple mille-feuille, kumquat confit and passion fruit curd are among the desserts planned for Le Voyage.
According to Cornelius Gallagher, vice president of catering for Celebrity Cruises and also a Michelin-starred chef, the Celebrity Beyond team will include “more than 300 talented chefs from over 30 countries, enabling us to offer truly world”. … Combined with the remarkable talents of Chef Boulud, I know our guests will taste the difference.
On land, Boulud’s many restaurants include nine in New York City as well as locations in Montreal, Singapore, Dubai and the Bahamas. Café Boulud in Palm Beach opened in 2003 at The Brazilian Court hotel.
Celebrity’s inaugural voyage Beyond includes a 10-night Western Europe cruise departing from Southampton, England.
The ship will sail from Port Everglades to Miami in early November, Celebrity officials told the Daily News in an email. For more information, visit www.celebritycruises.com/cruise-ships/celebrity-beyond.
