April 26, 2016 — Already renowned and acclaimed for creating some of the finest cuisine served in the most glamourous surroundings at sea, Cunard is proud to introduce new dining options as well as a host of enhancements to each of the liner’s existing restaurants during Queen Mary 2’s major refit taking place in June.
Queen Mary 2 Remastered will see the creation of the entirely new Carinthia Lounge that will serve alternative breakfast and lunchtime offerings together with bespoke premium coffees; the addition of The Verandah restaurant evoking memories of the famous Grill on the original Queen Mary; a completely transformed Kings Court Buffet; new Queens and Princess Grill menus and completely refurbished restaurants for guests staying in the suites and a new Smokehouse alternative dining concept.
In addition, menus in the existing Britannia Restaurant and Golden Lion pub, together with Cunard’s famous Afternoon Tea selection served in the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar, will all be refreshed.
Many of the new menus are being created and tested at a specially-commissioned new Development Kitchen which has opened in Cunard’s homeport of Southampton. Here, teams of chefs have been working with other culinary experts and suppliers to create a wide range of new dishes to be served on board.
“At Cunard, we pride ourselves in delivering a culinary experience that continuously exceeds guest expectations and illustrates Cunard’s utmost attention to detail,” said Richard Meadows, president, Cunard North America. “We are pleased to debut refreshed culinary offerings on Queen Mary 2 Remastered, which we have created to appeal to the most discerning guests while revitalizing classic dishes and creating new ones.”
