Debuting on Enchanted Princess as she emerges from dry dock on April 15th and coming soon to three more of the line’s newest ships, The Catch by Rudi is the first Princess restaurant primarily devoted to seafood. The eatery offers a completely fresh take on the genre with the chef’s contemporary interpretations of classic dishes, infused with international influences and combined with highly-creative presentations – all resulting in an engaging dining experience.
As proclaimed by John Padgett, President of Princess Cruises, “Chef Rudi is the foremost cruise culinary artist in the world with more than four decades of experience spanning the world’s best cruise lines. Chef Rudi’s creativity, passion and leadership in delivering exceptional experiences down to the finest details that consider guests preferences and tastes will surely make The Catch another must do onboard.”
What to expect
Replacing Bistro Sur La Mer, The Catch is expected to make a tremendous splash with their guests, who as soon as they pick up their menus will notice that they are experiencing something unexpected and novel, as they read things like “Beauty on the Plate” and “Tower of Taste.” The place settings are equally distinctive and guests are greeted at their table by a special cocktail created by mixologist Rob Floyd.
Priced at just $39 per person and available as a specialty dining option within the Princess Premier add-on package, the restaurant’s menu features The Daily Catch— only the freshest, sustainably sourced seafood from local ports of call. This is such tremendous value for the quality of the world class restaurant experience on offer.
Catch of the day
The new restaurant delivers a one-of-a-kind dining experience, including serving up classic dishes that delight as if they were being encountered for the first time. To that end, each preparation and presentation will be completely unique to guests dining onboard. The Catch will also include playful modern takes on traditional seafood dishes, such as lobsters with garlic butter crust; as well as presenting its own signature seafood inventions from the chef’s personal repertoire including a Towering Trio and Whole Dover Sole.
On the side, the Seafood Trolley is a feast for the eyes with fresh lobster tail, shrimp, oysters, mussels, piled high along with other gifts from the sea.
While the menu is focused primarily on seafood dishes, The Catch by Rudi also features offerings to appeal to every taste and appetite, along with vegetarian dishes, and signature beef classics like steak frites, all presented with the creativity that is distinctively Chef Rudi.
Unwind with a glass of wine
Accompanying your meal is an extensive wine list consisting of white, red, rose and sparkling wines from the coastal areas around the world, with handpicked options from the smartly uniformed wait staff ensuring that your drink compliments your choice of seafood. The Catch will be about comfort, fun and engagement with wine selections that will not intimidate and be comfortable for guests to select and experience.
“Guests who experience The Catch by Rudi are in for something truly special,” said Sami Kohen, vice president of food and beverage for Princess Cruises. “The meal will offer a number of surprises—from before the meal starts, through the unparalleled desserts that are as fanciful as they are delicious and come with a special gift at the end of the meal.”
