Cunard has developed a new dining concept dubbed ‘Steakhouse at The Verandah,’ 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 gran-finished 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 wagyu 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.
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 classic peppery syrahs alongside more contemporary juicy malbecs and rich chardonnays.
Steakhouse at The Verandah will be open for lunch and dinner for US$25 per person for lunch and US$39 per person for dinner, with some menu offerings requiring a further supplement. Dinner reservations are able to made prior to the voyage on Cunard’s Voyage Personaliser or once on board, and lunch reservations are available once on board.
Steakhouse at The Verandah is open on sea days for lunch from 12pm until 1:30pm and for dinner from 6:30pm until 9pm.
