In an effort to ensure a consistent presentation, Seabourn even acquired Homage by Thomas Keller in Checks pattern, the white porcelain dinnerware by Raynaud used in Chef Keller’s fine dining restaurants.Among the many culinary highlights are special theme nights in the Colonnade that pay homage to Chef Keller’s childhood, featuring classic comfort dishes such as BBQ Ribs served family-style on platters to complement a convivial shared dining experience. At the poolside Patio Grill, there are classic favourites including his signature Napa Burger and artisanal ‘Yountwurst’. Chef Keller’s formal French-American style of cuisine is featured on select evenings in The Restaurant, spanning a variety of menu items that could include:First Course:Terrine of moularde duck foie grasTruffle pain de genes, compressed asian pear and Sicilian pistachioMain Course:Buckwheat gnocchiTamari glazed shiitake mushrooms, golden beets, savoy cabbage and yuzuSonoma duck breast poêleCrispy rillettes, glazed harukei turnips, pickled blueberries and red cabbage pureeDesserts:Ginger and yoghurt semifreddoWhipped green tea and lemon meringueChampagne and granny smith apple trifleCrème chantilly, vanilla custard, and champagne jellyIn addition, as part of the collaborative process, Chef Keller introduced Seabourn to his long time purveyors from the United States.
