Crystal Cruises is expanding its partnership with acclaimed Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa to include his Asian-inspired restaurants aboard Crystal Symphony. Since 2003, Nobu's Silk Road and The Sushi Bar have been regular fixtures on Symphony's sister ship, Crystal Serenity. The two restaurants, sure to attract a host of gourmands, will debut on Symphony's March 3 cruise from Los Angeles to Hong Kong. The restaurants will occupy the former Jade Garden space (the ship's former specialty restaurant), and accommodate a total of 68 guests.
The restaurants will carry no additional fee, but reservations are recommended for Silk Road. The Sushi Bar will operate on a first-come, first-serve basis. "During the past four years, Crystal has done an incredible job of ensuring the consistent quality and integrity of my cuisine served aboard Crystal Serenity," Nobu said. "I am very pleased to build upon my relationship with Crystal Cruises and fully expect the opening of The Sushi Bar and Silk Road to further enhance Crystal Symphony's tradition of culinary excellence."
