The steakhouse will also offer a new plant-based option of “Impossible Salisbury Steak” served with French fries, roasted tomato, and truffle butter.
Chartreuse – Classic French with a Modern Twist
Chartreuse, Seven Seas Grandeur’s French restaurant, creates the glamor, artistry, fashion, architecture, and history of Paris into a single place. New dishes have been inspired by the 3-Michelin Star restaurant L’Auberge du Vieux Puits and honors classic French cooking. Dishes include halibut viennoise with fennel, porcini, spinach and veal jus and soupe de poissons with brandade, mussels, aioli and seed crisp.

Sette Mari at La Veranda – Authentically Italian
Positioned at the top of the ship, with a design inspired by the coastal landscape of the Mediterranean, Sette Mari at La Veranda will serve meals inspired by the flavors of Italy. The refined menu will be focused on heritage and was inspired by a trip that the Regent culinary team took to Puglia, Italy.
A hot appetizer menu includes authentic recipes for sformato di ricotta, a ricotta and parmesan cheese tart with tomato basil sauce; cozze alla marinara e pepperoncino, black mussels in a sauce of garlic, chili flakes, fresh tomatoes, white wine and parsley; and zucchine Ripiene, baked zucchini stuffed with slow roasted prime rib, herbs and parmesan cheese in a tomato sauce.
