Seabourn has partnered with Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller, who will create menu items for the Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest cruise ships beginning in early fall.
Also, Seabourn and Keller will collaborate on a restaurant that will debut on the Seabourn Quest next year before being expanded to the rest of the fleet, including the new Seabourn Encore, which is due to enter service in late 2016.
Keller has been awarded three Michelin stars for two of his restaurants: The French Laundry in Yountville, Calif., and Per Se in New York. Another restaurant in Yountville, Bouchon, has received one star.
Keller has also authored five cookbooks and is publisher of Finesse Magazine.
“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.”
