Caviar Selections and Seasonal Truffle Menu at Remy
As we shared over on our Facebook Page last week, Remy has some premium culinary options up its sleeve. More details were released today, and, in addition to the Petites Assiettes experience, caviar and truffles are in the spotlight.
Remy’s selections will be offered a-la-carte, and will include farm-raised Osetra and Sevruga caviares from regions of France and Russia. The caviar is served with blini pancakes, an egg cake, a cream sauce, and Krug Grande Année Champagne.
The truffle menu will be offered from November through February. The restaurant’s selection includes white Alba and black Périgord truffles, and come infused throughout a six-course menu. (I ordered the truffle menu in January 2013 on the Fantasy, and I will say, it is quite an experience!) Dishes include “gnocchi potato served with a truffle puree and garnished with grated truffle, fresh Maine lobster coupled with lobster bisque and truffle-seasoned Parisian fried potatoes and seared Wagyu beef over truffle glazed baby vegetables.” For dessert, you can indulge in an assortment of cheeses and sweet selections.
Be sure to make reservations before you board, or visit the hostess once on board.
