Thomas Keller’s fine dining empire (and expertise) is hitting the high seas.
The culinary mastermind behind a trio of Michelin-starred restaurants—The French Laundry, Per Se and Bouchon—is developing new dishes to be served on Seabourn’s luxury ships. Passengers aboard Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest will experience the highly anticipated menu as early as this fall, which will include appetizers, entrees and dessert offerings. A new signature restaurant helmed by Keller will also debut aboard Seabourn Quest by spring 2016 before expanding to the entire fleet.
“There is really no chef more accomplished or held in higher esteem than Chef Keller, and we are both honored and delighted to have a restaurateur of his stature take our onboard culinary offerings to an even higher level,” said Seabourn President Richard Meadows. “His culinary talent and sophisticated cuisine are beyond compare and the perfect match for our guests. We have no doubt our guests will be as excited as we are to taste and enjoy Chef Keller’s dishes on our ships.”
