Seabourn Announces New and Exciting Culinary Experience: Solis
We are thrilled to share the next chapter in our award-winning culinary experiences with the debut of “Solis”, a new fine dining venue, that celebrates Mediterranean cuisine inspired by the places visited by our ultra-luxury ships. Solis, an exquisite addition to our onboard culinary experiences, will offer you an array of light, modern Mediterranean cuisine bursting with color and character, handcrafted and prepared fresh daily. The new restaurant will launch on board Seabourn Quest in January 2024, and will be rolled out across Seabourn Encore, Seabourn Ovation, and Seabourn Sojourn by spring 2024.
The new fine dining experience has been meticulously curated to bring you Seabourn’s signature elegance and sophistication, ensuring that each meal becomes a truly memorable occasion. Designed to evoke all the senses, Solis will transport you to the Mediterranean through several surprise-and-delight culinary moments. Highlights include meticulous cocktails, vibrant plating, and flavor combinations that are both familiar and elevated, all served within a redesigned dining space reminiscent of the afterglow of the sun.
Solis was developed in collaboration with long-time Seabourn partners, Master Chef and Culinary Partner Chef Anton "Tony" Egger, and Senior Corporate Chef Franck Salein. Their years of Michelin-level experience, strong passion for travel, and deep knowledge of Seabourn guests have contributed to our culinary success, elevating our world-class dining to rival the finest restaurants anywhere. Chef Egger has opened restaurants in Singapore and Bangkok and has appeared worldwide in culinary events alongside Michelin-starred chefs. Chef Salein's extensive background includes roles as executive chef at several 2 and 3 Michelin-star restaurants. The skilled culinary team excels in providing a variety of dishes that cater to different appetites, ensuring each one is meticulously prepared and beautifully presented with a discerning eye. Chef Egger and Chef Salein are the culinary masterminds behind two of Seabourn’s most popular dining concepts — “Earth & Ocean” and “Sushi”.
“Culinary is an integral part of our ultra-luxury experiences, and we are committed to continuously innovating to delight our guests with unparalleled dining options. The addition of Solis is truly inspired by the voice of our guests and our team has worked hard over the past several months to bring this to life," said Natalya Leahy, president of Seabourn. “Solis will showcase a vibrant, chic atmosphere with feel-good background music and a menu reminiscent of our favorite travel memories. With each dish, guests are transported to the sun-kissed shores of the Mediterranean. An evening at Solis will surely delight our guests and leave them with lasting Seabourn Moments and memories.”
Solis will debut an array of dishes to reflect the diverse and tantalizing range of flavors of the Mediterranean. The menus will include colorful dishes inspired from the Rivieras to the central Mediterranean to the Greek flavors of the eastern Mediterranean. Each dish will represent a masterpiece of flavor, presentation, artistry, and story of our travel memories.
Solis will offer a delightful array of dishes to satisfy and linger over long after the last bite. Sumptuous, featured dishes include Piquillos De La Mama — Basque piquillo peppers with fresh Murcia goat milk cheese served on country bread crostini; Branzino — whole sea bass baked in a sea salt and fresh thyme crust served with artichokes and tomatoes; Bistecca Alla Fiorentina — Tuscan-style grilled beef porterhouse steak; and Spiced Lamb Shank — chargrilled smoked eggplant with tahini, pomegranate, roasted pine nuts, and labneh. A beautiful assortment of vegetarian and vegan options will also be incorporated throughout the menu.
Beyond the culinary, you will be able to indulge in a truly sophisticated experience with our newly presented and refined vintage cocktail menu, featuring an allure of classic cocktails expertly crafted to perfection. From classics such as the Kir Royale or Negroni to the always-popular Aperol Spritz, our team of talented mixologists have meticulously curated this menu to ensure that every drink is a masterpiece of flavors and aesthetics.
As we welcome the addition of Solis, we will also be ending our successful eight-year culinary partnership with Chef Thomas Keller by spring 2024. We are proud of what we have achieved together, and he will always be a part of the Seabourn family.
We hope you look forward to savoring this new and exciting fine dining experience on an upcoming Seabourn voyage.
