SEATTLE, January 7, 2019 – Seabourn, the world's finest ultra-luxury cruise
line, has long been known to offer guests caviar service but now is appealing
to the culinary senses of travelers even further with the introduction of Regiis Ova caviar on its fleet of five ships. This new
offering is an extension of Seabourn's culinary partnership with Chef Thomas
Keller through his new caviar company. Co-founded by Keller and Shaoching
Bishop, former CEO of Sterling Caviar and Tsar Nicoulai Caviar, Regiis Ova
("Royal Egg" in Latin) partners directly with the world's finest sources of
sturgeon farms that have met the standards of Chef Keller's restaurants,
including The Grill by Thomas Keller.
Regiis Ova has selected Siberian
Reserve (Acipenser Baerii) from a family owned and operated farm in the
fisherman village of San Gregorio de Polanco on the shore of the Rio Negro in
Uruguay. The Siberian Reserve is pleasing to the eye and palate, offering a
variety of shades and a subtle yet slightly sweet buttery flavor. Its eggs
offer a delicate texture with notes of walnut and dried fruits due to the
"Our caviar service is renowned
throughout the luxury travel industry, whether a guest orders it in one of our
restaurants, on the pool deck while getting some sun, or even in their suite,"
said Gerald Mosslinger, vice president of Hotel Operations for Seabourn.
"Regiis Ova caviar elevates this sought-after service even further with a product
that is sure to please the most discriminating palate."
Implementation of the new caviar
brand will begin to take place across the Seabourn fleet during the first part
of 2019 as current supplies of stock onboard are used and replenished.
Both Keller and Bishop share a
commitment to quality, a deep respect for their communities, and a desire to
make memorable experiences for their customers, all of which come through in
the Siberian Reserve caviar available to all guests onboard Seabourn.
Seabourn's partnership with Keller
began in 2015 and is brought to life through dishes served in venues across the
ship and in the dedicated restaurant, The Grill by Thomas Keller, which is
reminiscent of the classic American restaurant from the 50's and 60's. The
Grill is a unique culinary concept for Chef Keller, exclusive to Seabourn,
focusing on updated versions of iconic dishes. Guests are treated to table-side
preparations of Caesar salad and ice cream sundaes as well as a range of other
favorites like premium steaks, whole roasted chicken, and Lobster Thermidor,
presented à la carte. The timeless menu draws on the freshest products from
artisan purveyors. A unique cocktail program and premium wine list of domestic
and old world labels complement the menu. Design by Adam Tihany further
enhances the experience with distinctive spaces enlivened with intimate,
elegant, warmly masculine settings.
The Grill by Thomas Keller is open
to diners on all five of Seabourn's ships.
