Cunard Set to Bring Back Le Gavroche at Sea in Extended Partnership with Two Michelin-Starred Chef Michel Roux

VALENCIA, Calif., Jan. 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Cunard will bring back an exclusive series of Le Gavroche residencies at sea this year as two Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux brings his iconic London restaurant to guests on Queen Anne and Queen Mary 2.

The esteemed chef will close the popular Mayfair venue this month and oversee four Le Gavroche residencies across four exciting Fjords voyages in 2024.

The exclusive series will be delivered in partnership with the Norwegian Seafood Council and begins with Le Gavroche at The Verandah aboard Cunard's flagship Queen Mary 2, for her sailing to Hardangerfjord on June 2.

The five-night residency – which will be an additional charge for guests – will cater to 60 diners each evening, showcasing a beautiful variety of Roux's signature seafood specialties and elevated culinary classics.

Guests will be treated to a five-course tasting menu infused with all the flavors of the sea, elegantly finessed using the very best produce.

Roux will then host a second residency aboard Queen Mary 2 for her Hamburg roundtrip Fjords voyage on August 6.

That same month, Roux will deliver another intimate, five-night takeover with Le Gavroche at Sir Samuel's on-board Cunard's newest ship Queen Anne as she departs for Stavanger in Norway on August 11. This exclusive dining experience will cater for 50 guests each night.

The Le Gavroche custodian will complete his quartet of takeovers with a further Norwegian residency on Queen Anne on September 1 as she sails to Haugesund.

During these voyages, Roux will also appear as an Insights Speaker in the Royal Court Theatre, regaling guests with stories from his illustrious 40-plus-year career in the hospitality industry.

The news follows August's announcement that Roux will be creating an exclusive gala menu for Queen Anne's Queens Grill and Princess Grill restaurants, as well as a new Golden Lion menu full of refined pub favorites for Cunard's newest ship.

Katie McAlister, President of Cunard, said: "We are incredibly honored to exclusively host Le Gavroche at sea and continue our exciting partnership with Michel Roux. Just as Roux sets the bar for fine dining, we at Cunard set the bar for luxury ocean travel, and his innovative approach to celebrating traditional Norwegian cuisine perfectly aligns with our dedication to offering guests unforgettable and culturally rich experiences."

Michel Roux added: "It is an absolute privilege to bring Le Gavroche to Cunard's Queens, reuniting with their hugely talented and passionate culinary development chefs as we strive to create menus inspired by the treasures of Norwegian cuisine. The culinary heritage of Norway is a tapestry of flavors, and together with Cunard, I look forward to weaving these elements into an extraordinary dining experience at Sir Samuel's and The Verandah. My ongoing partnership with the Norwegian Seafood Council allows us to ensure every dish tells a story of the nation's natural beauty."
