SEATTLE, April 30, 2012 --- Seabourn has expanded the variety of menu options served at dinner time in the Patio Grill aboard Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest. The popular casual poolside eatery now offers an additional three new themed menus, more than 40 new appetizing dishes, and features a different pasta dish and pizza every day.
“The Patio Grill has been a huge hit among our guests, so much so that many of them want to dine there multiple nights during a voyage,” said John Delaney, Seabourn’s senior vice president, marketing and sales. “In response, we’ve decided to offer guests more choices and variety to enhance the casual outdoor dining experience on their Seabourn cruise.”
The line has added three new themed dinner menus, supplementing the popular Surf and Turf menu. The new ones are Chop House, Al Fresco and BBQ, and feature many new appetizing dishes. Entrees on the Al Fresco menu include Garlic and Herb Roasted Suckling Pig, Pancetta Wrapped Veal Tenderloin, Grilled Branzino and Rack of Lamb Chops. The Chop House theme features Cowboy Beefsteak, Veal Chop, Single Bone Lamb Chops and Fresh Salmon Cotelette. For a barbeque experience, guests can choose such tasty dishes as BBQ Beef Short Ribs, BBQ Glazed Corn Fed Chicken Breast, Glazed Salmon and Tamarind Glazed Jumbo Shrimp.
Also new in the Patio Grill dinner menus is a selection of “pick and go” appetizers and desserts, allowing guests to choose from a selection of four of each, already prepared and beautifully plated. The new appetizers include Seared Beef Carpaccio (Al Fresco), Prawn Cocktail with Horseradish Cream (Chop House), Smoked Halibut (BBQ) and much more. The menus also offer a different featured pasta dish every day, such as Lobster Mac ’n’ Cheese and Shrimp Tagliatelle, as well as a different pizza creation daily.
Complementing the new dinner menus, Patio Grill will continue to feature a variety of grilled specialties, salads and sides for lunch, as well as daily specials celebrating 15 themes, such as West Indies, delicious Panini creations, gourmet tacos, satay and more. The highly popular, freshly baked pizzas will also be available throughout the afternoon, as well as pastries in the morning.
The Patio Grill has been a popular dining spot for Seabourn guests since it was first introduced on Seabourn Odyssey three years ago. The new dinner themes and dishes offer more choice and variety for guests, inviting them to return often and enhancing their dining experience when they sail on Seabourn.
