Luxury cruise line Cunard has introduced a new dining concept, “Steakhouse at The Verandah,” which has become a permanent feature at the alternative dining restaurant on board the line’s three Queens – Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth.
Taking influence from both sides of the Atlantic, Cunard’s team of chefs have curated a menu showcasing prime USDA New York strip steak, Main lobster and Alaskan king crab, alongside dishes celebrating British provenance such as Scotch grass-fed, dry aged beef and Salt Marsh lamb rack. Offerings from farther afield such as renowned Waygu beef from Australia are also featured on the menu.
“After the success of the new Steakhouse menu onboard Queen Mary 2 last summer, our team has decided to take the concept across the fleet,” said Josh Leibowitz, senior vice-president, Cunard North America. “We welcome guests to join us at the new Steakhouse at The Verandah concept for the very best steakhouse at sea.”
In addition to the new menu, a new selection of craft cocktails will be available at The Verandah bar, reflecting contemporary mixology trends from some of the world’s most dynamic cities. The wine selection has also been specifically chosen to focus on “steak heroes” and features classis peppery Syrahs alongside more contemporary juicy Malbecs and rich Chardonnays.
Steakhouse at The Verandah will be open for lunch and dinner for a US$25 per person cost for lunch and a US$39 per person cost for dinner.
