Royal Caribbean International and James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Schwartz have introduced a new menu highlighting artisanal ingredients at 150 Central Park onboard Harmony of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas.
Guests can enjoy a signature cocktail, the Central Park Martini, as well as a variety of appetizers, entrées and dessert, including a tableside cheese cart, for an all-inclusive cover charge of $45. The restaurant, which is set in the ship’s Central Park neighborhood, is meant to build on the cuisine Chef Schwartz established at his Miami flagship restaurant Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink.
Menu selections include lobster gnocchi with carrot butter sauce, herb salad or Bittersweet Chocolate Bourbon Tart with salted caramel, spiced pecans, cranberry chutney and chantilly cream, as well as a cheese cart, tuna tartare or an 18-ounce tenderloin prepared tableside. There is also a wine program developed by Michael’s Genuine sommelier Eric Larkee.
Harmony of the Seas is the world’s largest cruise ship that combines the seven-neighborhood design of Royal Caribbean’s Oasis-class ships with new tech-focused amenities, such as the VOOM high-speed Internet service. Onboard guests can also enjoy the 10-story Ultimate Abyss water slide, the Broadway hit musical Grease and high-diving, acrobatic performances in the AquaTheater. Other onboard dining venues include Jamie’s Italian Cuisine by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver; Wonderland, a unique whimsical culinary adventure; and a bar with robot bartenders.
